Birth: 1797
Death: Oct. 16, 1870

The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Moment in History

Married in 1820 Silas and Chloe (Waite) Bacon of New York State
came to Henderson County on Sept.13, 1837.
This was before the county was organized and the Black Hawk War had just recently been concluded.
Mr. Bacon entered 160 acres of federal land and began farming.
Alas, tragedy struck and he died in 1841 leaving his wife and five children.
Frontier women were tough and with the help of three sons, 17, 14 and 7 years of age, she endured.
Two daughters joined their father in 1844 and now Mrs. Bacon was left with her three sons,
Alonzo, Franklin, and Ransom to work the land and carry on.
This staunch pioneer woman survived; in fact, she lived a long life finally going to her reward in 1870.
Well done, brave and faithful mother!!
