Daughter of Giles Night Smith and Elizabeth Moore Mitchell Smith, she was born and married in Unionville, SC. She was married to Rev. Peyton Green Bowman ( who was, at the time of her death, minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Blackville). Her children were: Elizabeth Moore Bowman, Virginia Caroline Bowman Calhoun (buried in Abbeville, SC), Giles Smith Bowman, Sarah Cheshier Bowman and an unidentified infant Bowman.

Obituary by Peyton G. Bowman published in the Southern Christian Advocate - August 23, 1853: "A more artless woman never lived than was my dear wife. She believed every one, confided in every one, loved every one and if she had an enemy on earth I never knew it. I spoke to her freely during her sickness, on the subject of her departure. She said she would not turn her hand to turn the will of God in her case; that she loved the Lord and had an unshaken confidence in the precious blood and atonement of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
