The other day I was flipping through a dictionary of saints looking for a confirmation name, and instead I found a saint Gemma. She was a visionary who lived during the victoria era. Remind you of anyone? Wink By the way, what year was Gemma born in the books? I want to see how close it is to St. Gemma's birthday.

If she was 16 in 1892-1895, i think, then that makes her to be born in 1876-1879. Maybe, I think.
hope that answered ur question!

Yessum, Sophia had it right! She was born in 1879, because she was born on June 21 and turned 16 in 1895, 17 in 1896. If you're math oriented like me, here ya go:

1895
- 16
_______
1879


YAY! I did it!

Okay, thanks. St. Gemma was born in 1878. I'm trying to see if there are any parallels besides the visionary aspect, but I think that's about it.
