In the Directory of 1894 James Osborne had left Doctor’s Harbour and was recorded as a resident of Old Woman’s Cove. It appears his mother Elizabeth (now Mrs. William Green, widowed again) was living with him. One wonders if the quaint name was given to this cove because Elizabeth Green, by now an old woman, was living there with her son James Osborne. This family appeared to have been the only residents there. When Elizabeth died in 1902, she was listed as a resident of Old Woman’s Cove (born Grand Bank around 1816) and was buried at Doctor’s Harbour.
