Caesar Bowens: Biographical Information

Caesar Bowens was formerly enslaved at Drayton Hall Plantation on the Ashley River, St. Andrews Parish, Charleston, South Carolina. Caesar's siblings were Catherine and John. The names of their parents await discovery. Caesar, Catherine and John were born into slavery. After Emancipation Caesar, Catherine and John officially took the surname Bowens.

After the War, Caesar stayed on at Drayton Hall, where he was the caretaker for the property. He lived in the north flanker (one of the buildings surrounding the main house).

Our work in the Antebellum records for the Drayton family continues. We hope to learn the names of Caesar, Catherin and John Bowens' mother and father.
