Dorcas Armilda Bryan Downing 1817 - 1906

Origin of the name "Dorcas": Acts 1 - 9:36

"Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas; this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did." Tabitha is an Aramaic name meaning gazelle and Dorcas is the Greek. When Dorcus died, Saint Peter raised her from the dead. She was made a Saint.
