Frances ‟Fanny” Margaret Allen, born in Sunderland, Vermont, was the daughter of Ethan Allen and his second wife Frances. She studied at Middlebury Seminary but at the age of 21 moved to Montreal where she studied French and converted to Catholicism. She experienced two profound moments in her life that led to her religious awakening, surprising friends and family. In 1811 she became a nun and joined the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph in Montreal as a nurse and interpreter for English-speaking patients. She worked as a nurse in the apothecary and cared for wounded soldiers during the War of 1812. Lung disease claimed her life at the age of 35.
