About Grace Sherwood Allen

The Allen Lot on Lobelia Path has a large granite monument surmounted by a draped allegorical figure. On the left is a remarkably well preserved white marble statue of Gracie Allen, which has been under glass for well over a century.

Grace Sherwood Allen (1876-1880) was the daughter of William H. Allen and Emily J. Allen and she died prior to her fith birthday from whooping cough and was immortalized by sculptor Sydney H. Morse (1832-1903) who depicted the young girl in a buttoned dress, boots and bow-tied hair. In her hand are drooping flowers, the petals of which have begun to fall. The glass enclosed memorial is adjacent to the Allen Monument
