Grace Laverne Galloway
Birth: Oct. 5, 1871
Jamestown
Chautauqua County
New York, USA
Death: Nov. 2, 1898, USA

Daughter of John and Sara Callahoun Galloway, Grace Galloway was a singer whose vocal abilities were considered extraordinary. She performed in a number of operas at the Chautauqua Institution in New York state. She was given a chance to perform with the New York City Metropolitan Opera but was denied permission by her father who considered it an improper thing for a lady to do. The exterior of her monument was completed by her father and grandfather. The life-size replica statue was designed by an artist in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and sculpted from marble in Florence, Italy. The statue wears one of Miss Galloway's "lawn outfits". Many local legends exist about the "Lady Behind Glass". One of the most popular is that Miss Galloway is shown in her wedding dress and died of a broken heart. In fact, she died of tuberculosis.
