An account in an unknown Montreal newspaper by Frederick Douglas makes it clear that his wife, Mrs. Douglas, and his mother-in-law, Mrs. Baxter, were in the same boat:
“Mrs. Baxter was not very well, so Quigg (Baxter) took her up in his arms and carried her to the deck, where the ladies were to get the boats. He helped his mother and my wife in the boat. ….This boat was not half full. …. Manned by two stewards and a sailor, while one young boy, apparently an apprentice steward, was hidden away under a seat.”
Major Peuchen's American Inquiry testimony, page 342, mentions Mrs. Walter Douglas in #6. However, he mentions the wrong Mrs. Douglas. Mrs. Walter (Mahala) Douglas has been proven in #2, so the Mrs. Douglas he mentions must have been Mary Douglas, wife of Frederick.
