Hezekiah is the great great grandfather of this contributor.

He served in Company K of the 54th Georgia Infantry.

Hezekiah and Martha had 11 children that we have some information on, the following we have not discovered enough information to determine death or burial information, America Bowen, born ca 1859; Catherine Bowen, born ca 1861; Fereby (and various other spellings) Bowen, born ca 1864, reportedly married Eli Beasley; Nathaniel Bowen, born ca 1866; Lela Rebecca Bowen born October 1868, married to Willis R. Akins; John Chester Bowen, born ca 1878.

Hezekiah's death is noted in a very short obituary in the October 8, 1908 issue of the Jesup Sentinel, Jesup, Wayne County, Georgia: "Mr. Hezekiah Bowen a very aged man died one day last week and was buried at the Primitive church."
