Grace Sherwood Allen (not a relative of mine) was a child of William H. and Emily J. Allen. She was born on June 5, 1876 and lived at 11 Wellington Street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Grace died November 11, 1880, shortly before her 5th birthday, of whopping cough.
She is buried at Forest Hills Cemetery and Cremetory in Jamaica Plain, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.
This is the most unusual child tombstone I've ever seen. I am assuming that enclosed statue is Grace.
On the search . . . .
For many years now I've been searching my past in an endeavor to unfold the tales of my family. I've traveled (via the internet) to England, Denmark, Norway, Ohio, Nebraska, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. I've spent time personally visiting historic Boston and their wonderful cemeteries and, or course, visited my ancestors right here in California. My ancestors have touched the world in many places... and I hope to enjoy some of their experiences. I want you to join me as I travel through my past... and uncover their stories..
