From the St. Paul Dispatch, April 27, 1912:
“We lost everything we had in the disaster,” said Mr. De Messemaker. “It was too terrible to think about” he said. “My wife cannot speak English. She was taken off in the first boat that left the Titanic. When we parted we thought it was forever.
    When boat No. 13, which left last of all except one was being loaded, there was a shortage of men. They asked me if I could row and when I said yes they told me to get in. There were no more women in sight then. There were seven men in that No. 13 and a good many women."

He seems to say his wife left in the first boat (#9?) and that he left in 13.
