      477     ii          Capt. Thomas9 Doig, born 15 Sep 1845 in Dysart, Fife, Scotland; died 11 Apr 1925 in San Diego Co., CA.   Notes: Thomas Doig made his first sea voyage to Melbourne in 1859 in the Black Ball Line of packet ships, remaining in this employ for four years and leaving it to go to the mines in New Zealand. He was then in the coasting trade around Australia for a similar period, going thence to Mauritius as mate on a vessel. On returning he engaged in trading among the South Sea Islands for two years, next going to China, where he shipped with the vessel which took the first cargo of Chinamen from Hong Kong to New Zealand. He left the vessel at Hong Kong a few months later, and, after making a couple of voyages to Singapore, came to Oregon as a passenger on the bark "Garibaldi" in 1872; he became a naturalized US citizen in 1878. From 1872 Thomas served for a short time as a deckhand on Holladay's steamers on the upper Willamette, subsequently joining the "Falkenberg" as second mate with Capt. J. A. Brown, with whom he was afterward mate for a few trips. He then commenced piloting for Captain Flavel, with whom he remained five years The Nimbus, an American ship, 1,302 tons, struck the sands of the Columbia bar outward botind, and plunged to the bottom twenty-five miles northwest of the river, December 29, 1877. 'The vessel under pilot Thomas Doig, crossed the bar at 8:30 a.m. with a cargo of wheat from Portland valued at $92,500. Following the south channel, the ship scraped over the middle sands. When the pilot departed from the ship, Captain R. L. Leonard discovered his vessel was taking water at an alarming rate. The vessel was put about and headed for shore, but the wind died and she was becalmed. Leonard signalled the "Aberystwith Castle" and the "Pilgrim" to stand by. At 7 p.m. when the water reached the tween decks of the Nimbus, the crew abandoned and was picked up by the stand-by sailing vessels. The ship went down a few hours later. She was valued at $65,000, and had been built at Bath, Maine, in 1869. (James A. Gibbs, Jr. Pacific Graveyard. A narrative of the ships lost where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. Portland: Binfords and Mort) In 1878 Thomas joined the opposition pilots to the Flavel monopolhy on the schooner "Rescue." When the latter withdrew, Captain Doig went to Costa Rica to look after the sale of the schooner and while there was appointed captain of the man-of-war "Yrazu," the old steamship "Pelican" under a new name. With the "Yrazu" he made a trip to Cocos Island with prisoners, and was in the service of the Costa Rican Government for a year, subsequently going to San Francisco, and, with pilots Howes, Woods and Olsen, purchasing the pilot schooner "J. C. Cousins," which they operated on the Columbia bar until she was lost. Captain Doig then engaged as mate on the steamer "Queen" until the pilot steamer "Governor ?goody" was put into service, when he joined her as one of the State pilots and has since continued on the bar. Notice in "Morning Oregonian," Portland, 25 Sept 1878, 30 Sept 1878, 29 Oct 1878, 9 Nov 1878, and 20 Nov 1878: Columbia River Bar. Shipmasters, owners, and consignees of vessels are hereby noticed that the new Pilot Schooner RESCUE is now ready and in active service on the Columbia River Bar. She will cruise on the outside of the bar and be ready in all weather are to put experienced and trustworthy Pilots on board any vessels inward or outward bound. Eric Johnson, Thos Doig, M D Staples, Thos Master. An attempt to break Captain Flavel's pilotage monopoly was made in 1878 by Bar Pilots Eric Johnson, Thomas Doig, M. D. Staples and Thomas Masters, who operated the schooner "Rescue" on the bar. Capt. George W. Wood was taken in afterward, but the competition was short-lived. The "Rescue," a fast sailer of seventy-two tons burden, was built by Matthew Turner at a cost of $8,000. When she was taken off the bar, Masters, who was at that time pilot on the "Great Republic," found a buyer, and, giving his place on the steamship to Doig, sailed south with her to Cocos Island in search of the treasure Capt. George W. Wood, supposed to be buried there. Finding nothing, she departed for Costa Rica, where she was sold to the Government. Notice in "Morning Oregonian," Portland, 26 Jan 1880: Gone to Mexico - Pilot Thomas Doig at whose door was laid the blame for the Great Republic disaster last summer and who alone suffered the penalty has gone to Mexico to look after a considerable sum of money said to be due him from the sale of a schooner in which he had half interest. [The Great Republic, a sidewheel steamer, was run aground on Sand Island on 19 Apr 1879, followed by a south-east gale that destroyed the vessel with the loss of eleven lives.] COSOVICH, PETER Mayor-Mariner If Pilot Thomas Doig had not attempted to cross the Columbia River bar and enter the river one night in April 1879, Astoria, Oregon would not have had Peter Cosovich as mayor. The ship that Pilot Doig plowed straight into Sand Island was the Great Republic. One of the seamen on board was Pete's father who was only fourteen years old. Perhaps this was been enough adventure for the boy who, after being rescued from the shipwreck, settled in the area. The genial Cosovich was mayor of Astoria from 1951 to 1958. Notice in "Morning Oregonian," Portland, 25 June 1889: Captain A. J. Brown's steam launch Mikado arrived down from Portland yesterday, and will leave for Puget Sound this morning in command of Thomas Doig, etc. The following article was published in "The Portsmouth Hearld," Portsmouth, NH, 18 May 1900, originally reported in the "Portland Orgonian": Crusing for a Fly Speck. But For This the Rescue's Crew Would Have Got the Doubloons.    The sailing of a schooner from Victoria bound for Cocos Island to dig up the rich plunder supposed to be buried there brought out a number of contradictory reports about the authenticity of that treasure legend, the latest story being to the effect that it was discovered and carried away early in the eighties. A waterfront man was reading this yarn, and when he had finished exclaimed:    "That shows what great results sometimes hinge on such small matters. I know a couple of men who would Probably have recovered all of that treasure if it had not been for a fly."    The exclamations of surprise and incredulity which greeted these remarks were all the encouragement needed, and the veteran proceeded:    "It was along about the later part of 1879 that Thomas Doig, Eric Johnson, William Masters and M. D. Staples, who had been running an independent pilot service at the mouth of the river with the schooner Rescue, were driven off the bar by the Flavel monopoly. Having no further use for the schooner, Masters and Doig sailed south in her to do a little discovering on Cocos Island and to eventually sell the vessel in some port on the lower coast. Staples dug up some old charts of the Pacific, which, though a trifle worn with age, were supposed to be accurate, and in due season the craft sailed out of Astoria never to return. Cocos Island was noticable on the map, but there was not name attached to it. In due season, the Rescue and her fortune hunters reached the longitude and latitude where the isle of riches showed up on the map. They almost went blind straining their eyes to catch sight of the land, but their search was unrewarded, and, like Noah's ark in the song, the 'jes kep' a sailin, and a sailin.' Every time they would get past that spot on the map they would double back on their tracks again, but the island would not appear.    "There is no telling how long this state of affairs would have lasted had it not been for the discovery made by Doig one morning. Master had the old chart spread out on the table and was figuring away for dear life when Doig came down from the deck. He leaned over Master's shoulder, drew his sheath knife and made a scratch on the paper. Cocos Island disappeared and Master, as soon as he had gained his composue, said, 'Well, I'll be darned if it wasn't a fly speck.'    "This discovery disgusted them so much that they bore away for San Jose de Guatemala, where the schooner was sold, and Doig became admiral in the navy at that point, and it was only about a year later before this other outfit came along to Cocos and dug up a schooner load of Spanish doubloons, showing plainly that if it had not been for that fly, Doig and Masters would have found the treasure, for it the fly had kept off the paper they would have never sailed without a map showing the island, and, of course, if they had found the island before the treasure was taken it would have been theirs." In 1900 Thomas was single and farming in Jewell, Clatsop Co., OR. In 1910 he was living on his own means and lodging at 509 "H" Street, San Diego, CA; he was listed as single. In 1920 he was a widower lodging at 1355 9th Street, San Diego, CA; his occupation was listed as "none."

Notes for Alexander Doig

      The link to parents is uncertain and based on approx. age, eldest known children named the same as parents, and from Glasgow where siblings Janet, Mary, Jean, and Peter moved to and died there. Against this link is he was recorded a year or two older at immingration and a younger brother Peter Alexander Speirs Murray Doig with repeat of Alexander suggesting the earlier Alexander was deceased.

     

      Alexander (24 [1812/3] Glasgow, joiner) and his wife Janet (21 Glasgow) departed Dundee on 25 Mar 1837 on the ship "John Barry" and arrived in Sydney, NSW, Australia on 13 July 1837. They reported having no relative living in New South Wales.

     

      Immigration Report of 1837 for Australia extracted from the British Parliamentary Papers:

Statement, transmitted from the Quarantine Station, by David Thompson, Esq., R.N., Surgeon Superintendent of the Ship "John Barry," with Emigrants from Scotland, in reply to questions from the Committee. "I am not aware to what extent useful emigrants to these colonies can be procured from Dundee, and other ports in Scotland; but I am of opinion that the port of Leith or of Glasgow would, either of them, be preferable to Dundee, as I think the emigrants would be sooner collected, and from a superior class of mechanics. Of the persons embarked at Dundee, there were 79 married couples, three single men and eight single women, and 150 children of all ages. Three adults have died, one of fever, occasioned by exposure to the hot sun at St. Jago, one of malignant scarlet fever, and lately one of typhus. Twenty-three children have died of various diseases, but mostly of affections of the bowels, arising from unsuitable food. The number of deaths is certainly greater than would likely have taken place had they remained in their native country. The tonnage of the ship is 524 tons; she is an old ship, not particularly leaky, but admitted water both by leakage and down the hatchways, during the run from the Cape of Good Hope to Port Jackson, the weather having been generally boisterous. She was the reverse of comfortable in her 'tween decks, being encumbered with luggage to such a degree, that in bad weather, when most persons were below, it was difficult to pass from one end of the ship to the other. The provisions and water were wholesome, and served in sufficient quantities.

     

      In 1839 Alexander was a cabinetmaker in Sydney.  In 1845 he was a carpenter on Clyde Street, Sydney.  In 1851 he lived on Crown Street, Wooloomoolloo.  He was a Presbyterian.
