    1868| The baby brother named Charles was born

    1869| Not one, but two younger brothers were born. The twins were named Amos and Arthur

    1870|Hogwarts time! She was sorted in Ravenclaw.

    1874| Isobel joins her at Hogwarts. She also enters her fifth year of schooling and is chosen prefect.

    1877| She graduates and debuts.  Muggles become aware of the existence of witches and wizard. It worried Veronica but they were pretty safe in their current home and there was no need to move to Hogsmeade.

    1880| After several unsuccessful seasons, a widower named Nathaniel Gallivan courts her. While she was not in love with him, she does think of him fondly. Also, her brothers go to Hogwarts.

    1882| Veronica gives birth to her first child, Nathaniel.

    1884-1885| Her sister moves in with the Gallivans. Nothing much happened, except from the plague and burning of homes in Hogsmeade. Thankfully her family was unaffected. She had also noticed the some changes with her step-daughter Cecily but she brushes it off as a part of growing up and puberty.

    1886| Isobel is still unmarried which worries Veronica.  Theodore is graduating. And other stuff would happen ;)
