Anna Murray Douglass was the first wife of Frederick Douglass. Anna helped Douglass in securing his escape to freedom and was a devoted wife and mother to their children.
“During her wedded life of forty-four years, whether in adversity or prosperity, she was the same faithful ally, guarding as best she could every interest connected with my father, his life-work and the home.”
Anna Murray Douglass died on August 4, 1882 at the age of about 68. She was initially buried in Washington, D.C. but her children had her body moved to Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, New York after the death and burial of their father, Frederick Douglass, in 1895.
