The Admiral and Samantha's Grandmary were in love even when when she was married to Samantha's grandfather.Her husband died many years ago but she keeps refusing the Admiral's marriage proposals. Why? Is she just being loyal to her late husband? Or is it out of guilt? Plus, Grandmary seems like the type of person to marry a man for reasons other than love. It's very possible that she agreed the marry Mr. Edwards because it was the respectable thing to do and fell madly in love when she met his best friend. I can't see Grandmary ever having an affair but quietly pining for years, yes!
Uncle Gard and Cornelia are time travellersThat's why they are somewhat more forward thinking than other characters, and why Cornelia is so certain that airplanes will one day carry passengers. Uncle Gard was somehow able to travel from his own time in the early 1900s to an era a few decades in the future, fell in love with Cornelia there, and brought her and her sisters back to live with him.
All of the historical characters exist in the same universe.In addition, several of the characters are related/have met one another, due to the overlapping eras.
Julie Albright is the mother of Kailey Hopkins.Both live in California. Their resemblance is uncanny. If Kailey Hopkins was 10 years old around 2002-2003, and Julie Albright turned 10 in 1976, Julie would be around the right age to be Kailey's mother.
Kit will become a Kick-Ass foreign correspondent/spy during WWIICome on, the fanfics write themselves!
Both Kit and Molly went to movies starring the brilliant actress, Rebecca Rubin.Taking a clue from the above WMG which assumes the stories are all in the same universe. Since Rebecca, Kit and Molly have the most overlap in time periods, it's not so much of a stretch that Rebecca's acting career encompasses the two later periods.
Josefina is related to Inigo Montoya.Why not? One of Inigo's descendants could have settled in Mexico.
Felicity's Grandfather left his entire estate to her.It doesn't seem like Grandfather had any other children besides Martha, and this seems further confirmed by the fact that Edward, the son-in-law had to help secure the estate after Grandfather died. Changes for Felicity seems to indicate that Edward was gone for quite awhile to get matters in order. But if Martha was Grandfather's sole beneficiary, then why would Edward need to stay away so long to settle matters? Maybe, unbeknownst to Felicity at least, she was named the primary beneficiary in Grandfather's will and thus his lands and estates would go to her. Maybe the lengthy business that Edward had to attend to at the estate was actually to make sure the estate stayed secure for his daughter? After all Felicity was merely 11-12 years old by the end of Changes and by law was seen as an unmarried girl, so someone of her station would not have seen fitting of inheriting such an estate. So by default this would make Edward the temporary beneficiary and Edward would undoubtedly do everything he could in order to ensure Felicity got what was rightfully hers. So due to her strong bond with Grandfather, and the love she feels for his estate, Felicity may have been named as the inheritor of the estate. Edward and Martha may be withholding this news for Felicity until she comes of age...or maybe until the Revolutionary War begins to die down, which wouldn't be for another seven years or so.
