Anna Kim Chang-gum was arrested on April 8, 1839, at the age of 51. Anna was born into a Catholic family. She lost her husband when she was young, and was living with her mother in poverty. She spent her time in fervent prayers.
There is little recorded about Anna. It is known, however, that she was taken outside the Small West Gate with seven other Catholics, and all of them were beheaded there on July 20, 1839. Anna was 51 years old when she was crowned with martyrdom.
