Birth: Nov. 20, 1867
Anderson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov. 6, 1928
Anderson County
Texas, USA

Ex-county Commissioner A.H. Bacon passed away at his home in the Pine Forest community Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, following a protracted illness.

Funeral services were held at the family home today at 1 p.m. The body was interred with Masonic rites at the Frankston Cemetery at 2 p.m. A deputation of members from the Athens Masonic Lodge assisted in the ceremony.

Mr. Bacon is survived by his widow and several children.

For many years he was prominent in the affairs of the county and was widely known in East Texas. He was a very successful farmer and stockman. He took an active part in the politics of the county and was made road supervisor under the Faulk road law. He was later elected Commissioner of his precinct, filling the office in a most creditable manner. He had a host of friends over a wide territory who will learn of his death with the keenest regret.
