"Since her recovery from tuberculosis at the turn of the century, she lived in a house at 38 Shepard Avenue, which she sold several years ago to Andrew McGarraghy. It was her custom to spend most of the winters here, and then return for the summer to New Bedford. More precisely, she would spend about six weeks here in the Fall, then about the first of the year come back for about six months."
