The Daily Mirror, May 4, 1912:
“Mrs. E. Leather, of Birmingham, gave me a succinct narrative of her escape in Boat 16, which was the last on the port side to be filled, at about 1.30. The master-at-arms, Mr. Bailey, was in charge, and there were two sailors and two firemen, the rest of the 42 on board were all women, mostly from the steerage, except two foreigners, who hid under the seats. Miss Marsden rowed all night with the men, Miss Jessop and myself nursed two little babies. “
An article in Commutator #144 (Vol 22 No 4), “Australian Links to Titanic” mentions Miss Marsden getting a seat in #16, but gives no backup documentation for the claim.
Devon Gazette, May 1, 1912:
"A first-class stewardess told me that Miss Marsden, a stewardess, helped to row the boat. They were both in No. 16."
