Mrs. Maria L. Campbell was the widow of Assistant Surgeon Sylvester Campbell, of the 16th Regiment, New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry, who, previously a resident of Sanbornton, NH, was credited to Portsmouth, when appointed Assistant Surgeon, November 6, 1862 (N. H. Register, page 769.) He died of disease at Carrollton, near New Orleans, Louisiana, February 6, 1863.

Mrs. Campbell was born in Maine, March 30, 1836, daughter of Rev. Albert O. and Mary (Brown) Manson, who, when she was a few weeks old, removed to Portsmouth, N, H. She early became a public school teacher, and in July 1858, married Dr. Sylvester Campbell, and resided in Tilton, NH

After Dr. Campbell's death, she visited Mrs. Mary T. Wildes, in Georgetown, Mass., widow of a Lieutenant in the same Regiment; and a little later, early in September, 1864, both friends were appointed Ariny Nurses by Miss Dorothea L. Dix, and going from Portsmouth, served together in the General Hospital, Fort Monroe, Virginia, until the end of the war. Afterwards both were teachers, under the Freedmen's Bureau, in schools for negroes, at Lake City, Florida.

Returning North, Mrs. Campbell taught music at Pennington Seminary in New Jersey, and later became Preceptress of the Seminary. There she married Professor John Tiddy, and they went to Springfield, Mass., to reside. Rev. Mr. Tiddy died ; and in September 1875, she became the second wife of Dr. Orlando B. Douglas, and for twenty-five years their home was in New York City. There she studied medicine, and won the degree of M. D. With her husband she travelled extensively in America and Europe; but in 1901 they went to Concord, N. H., for a permanent home.

Mrs. Douglas was prominent and active in many lines of endeavor; being Chaplain of the Woman's Relief Corps in the Department of New Hampshire, and also of the National Woman's Relief Corps. She was elected President of the National Association of Army Nurses in 191 and 1912 ; and died while in office, on January 18, 1913. Her husband, Dr. Orlando B. Douglas, of Concord, N. H., now Medical Director of the Department of New Hampshire, Grand Army of the Republic, and one son, Edwin Rust Douglas, of Philadelphia, survive her.
