Emily Seton was born to William and Emily (Prime) Seton, in 1836, in New York. She was a pious and amiable young lady, who received her education at Sacre-Coeur in Paris. She had good offers of marriage, which she refused, because she desired to enter a convent. She had a photograph of Pope Pius IX, which he gave her on September 9, 1861, as she was preparing to make a spiritual retreat, and under which he wrote "Dominus ducit te in solitudinem ut Loquatur ad cor tuum" which roughly translates to "The Lord leads you into this wilderness so as to speak to your heart." She died as a result of typhoid fever, at Rye Beach NH, on September 24, 1868.
