Grace Dupee Chamberlain Allen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 16, 1856
Brunswick
Cumberland County
Maine, USA
Death: Oct. 13, 1937

Daughter of Civil War hero Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and his wife Fanny (nee Adams), Grace was the eldest of four children born to the Chamberlains in their home near Bowdoin College, but only she and a brother known as "Wyllys" survived infancy. Called "Daise" by her adoring father, she was exceptionally close to him, and the two shared a life-long bond of sympathy and understanding. In April 1881 she married Horace Gwynne Allen, and in time the couple became the parents of three daughters: Eleanor, Beatrice, and Rosamond. "Daise", who in 1914 rushed from her Boston home to share her widowed father's last moments, survived him by 23 years. She died in 1937, three days before her 81st birthday. Her younger brother Harold Wyllys Chamberlain, who died at age 69 in 1927, is buried nearby.
