Family of Lemuel W Bacon
Michael, I am searching for the parents of my Great Grandmother. Her maiden name was Alice Bacon. I found a census from 1870 that had an Alice bacon who was 17 at the time. This would put her at the correct age, as my Great Grand Mother was born in 1852. It listed Lemuel W Bacon as the head of the household. Can you tell me anything about the Alice Bacon listed in the 1870 Census. Do you have any info about her life, marriages, children, death.

I only have family stories about my Great Grandmother Alice and know nothing about her parents or sibling etc.... The story they tell is that Alice was of Indian heritage and had been adopted by a white family. My Great Grand Father Frank Burton always said the only thing he ever stole was a piece of "Bacon". Referring to his wife Alice. He stole her away and married her. Alice died on Cancer and Frank believed that you could catch cancer and would not Eat after her or get close to her during that time. The say she was angered by his behavior and that she willed him to have a cancerous mole on his nose. He did in fact have a cancerous mole and had it removed several times, each time he did, it would always grow back.

I see Lemuel is from the Posey county area of Indiana. My family is from the Lawrence county area (also of Indiana). Both are in the southern part of Indiana.

I thank you in advance for any information you may have.
