Dumas, Marie-Césette (-1772)



Dumas' grandmother, wife of the Marquis Antoine-Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie, and mother of Thomas-Alexandre Dumas. In his Mémoires, Dumas says she was promoted from the position of slave to wife and managed the estate in Jérémie, San Domingo (now in Haiti) until her death in 1772. (In his Mémoires Dumas also refers to her as both Louise-Césette and Marie-Césette.)
