About Emilia Faustina Ana Sarmiento Canto

Born in San Felipe Aconagua in July 1831, she was the daughter of Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. Her mother died when she was young and her father took her to San Juan when she was 5 to be cared for by his mother and sisters. She was educated in the Colegio de Santa Rosa, founded by her father. She fled to San Felipe Aconagua with her grandmother and aunts in 1842 where she continued her studies. Her father travelled in Europe and the United States bringing back with him a young Frenchman, Julio Belin, who he set up in a printing business. Within a year he married Faustina Sarmiento (1848). They had 6 children. They moved back to San Juan after Rosas's fall. She was widowed in 1865 and devoted herself to working with her aunt Bienvenida. She participated in the Sociedad de Madres Cristianas, a precursor to the Sociedad de Beneficencia. She helped during the yellow fever epidemic in Buenos Aires.
