The following was in the Evening Telegram, St John's Nfld. on August 20, 1953 [sic] "James Demoster (as you can see an "o" was used instead of the "p") came out from England as clerk on Bird's room, Labrador. He came of a well-to-do family, and was engaged to an English girl who left him to marry another. He then resolved to run away from home, and came to Labrador in a Jersey vessel. He said he would marry the ugliest squaw on the Coast, and sure enough, married an Esquimaux widow and had one son named John. He died comparatively young and was buried in Doury's Cove near Hawk's Harbour. John Demoster (again the "o") came across the Strait of Belle Isle, and was the first settler at Flower's Cove, one mile east of French Island Harbour, which became the port of call for the mail boat. Flower's Cove now includes both harbours."
