Isabella Bourland Bacon
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1761
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 4, 1824
St. Francois County
Missouri, USA

Isabella (nee Bourland) Bacon was the wife of Michael Bacon, a Colonial Soldier of the American Revolutionary War and according to entry on him, he died in Hawkins County, Tennessee on 23 August of 1807, 540 miles away from Farmington, Missouri on modern roads. Could her husband actually be laid to rest in this Masonic Cemetery? No listing of him in the actual cemetery records.

Isabella was the daughter of John Bourland and Catherine (nee Randolph) Bourland of Northern Ireland who immigrated to Virginia about 1761.
One web-site by "Wendy Harrison's Family Page" states the daughters of Isabella Bourland Bacon were Sarah, Mary & Catherine. No Rachel is listed even though Sarah Bacon Murphy's sister (sister-in-law) was Rachel with some records stating her maiden name was "Bacon." Even though the above web-link does not list Rachel, she could still be part of this family as Rachel's birth year of 1788 could mean she was a twin to Catherine...(plausable). See family link below to Rachel (nee Bacon) Murphy. Additional note: Isabella (nee Bourland) Bacon's paternal grandmother was Rachel (nee Moore) Bourland of Ireland.

Isabella (nee Bourland) Bacon's siblings according to and the above web-site were:
1) Rev. John Bourland (Jr.) (1762-1844)
2) William Bourland (1765-1806)
3) Ebenezer Bourland (1768-1842)
4) Alexander Bourland (1771-1811)
5) Archibald Bourland (1773-1850 per, b. 1781 per Wendy Harrison's Family Tree)
6) James Bourland (1775-1823)
7) Benjamin Bourland (1779-1851)
8) Either Presley or Patsey Bourland (1780-1825)
