A talk by Jym St. Pierre
Hosted by the Pejepscot History Center
Thursday, February 23, at Noon, via Zoom
During Black History Month, Jym St. Pierre will present his research on Caesar Freeman, one of the first settlers of the Town of Bowdoin, Maine and a free Black man. An early member of the First Baptist Church of Bowdoin, Freeman had his own nameplate on a pew and Caesar’s Pond in Bowdoin is named for him. Jym will trace his arrival in Bowdoin, his livelihood and family life, and how some of his descendants married into families that settled in Brunswick.
