About Charles Edward Stowe

The Stowes’ youngest son was rambunctious and gave his parents trouble. He ran away from school at 13 to become a sailor, but the Stowes found him before the ship set sail. His mother used his antics as a model for her story Our Charley.

Charles Stowe was ordained as a minister in 1878. He married Susan Monroe (1853-1918) and had three children. The young family lived at his parents’ Hartford home for a short time in 1883. From the mid 1880s until the late 1890s he was minister of the Simsbury, CT Congregational Church. Charles wrote a biography of his mother, The Life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, in 1889. Later editions were co-authored by his son Lyman.

Lived the last years of his life in California-- he is likely buried there.
