After being pronounced dead by the attending physician, and remaining in a comatose condition for fully a half hour, Isaiah BACON, living south of Green Oak, rallied eighteen hours, dying Saturday morning at seven o'clock. Friday about eleven o'clock Mr. Bacon, who would have been eighty years of age had he lived until Monday, was stricken with paralysis, which affected him in practically all his faculties. All of his children were called to his home and there, about one o'clock, when all were at his bedside, it was announced by the attending physician that he was dead. His pulse stopped, and the action of his heart was not noticeable, while his eyes became glassy and "set." Thirty minutes later, after the family had begun to make arrangements to secure the services of an undertaker and embalmer, one of the children unconsciously felt the pulse of the supposed dead man and it was found that there was a very weak "beat." The physician who had left the house was recalled and restoratives were administered which resulted in Mr. Bacon rallying, regaining consciousness and recognizing his wife and children. Owing to the paralysis he was unable to speak but answered several questions by shaking or nodding his head. From the time of his supposed death Friday afternoon up until midnight he was unable to swallow, but after that time the resolution of the swelling in his throat relieved him and he suffered no pain until his death. Mr. Bacon had lived in Fulton county practically all his life, he coming here with his parents when a child about two years old, and since resided here except a year which he spent at Macy. He lived at the home where he died for the past twenty-five years. He leaves a wife and four children, Mrs. Charles KEEL of Rochester, Will BACON, Mrs. George COLLINS and Mrs. George BABER all of near Green Oak. He was a member of the Methodist church and a good old gentleman. The funeral will be held at the Green Oak Methodist church, Monday at 2 o'clock, Rev. NORRIS, of Macy, officiating. Burial at the Mt. Zion cemetery. Isaiah BACON was born in New York June 21, 1826, and at the age of 17 came to Indiana with his parents who located on a farm near the home where he spent his last days. He was united in marriage April 25, 1853, to Anna PEARSON, who died March 30, 1876. To this union were born six children, three of whom, Sarah [BACON], Alma [BACON] and Eldora [BACON] with the mother are dead. Those surviving are William N. [BACON] of Athens, Mrs. George COLLINS, of near Green Oak and Mrs. Chas. KEEL, of Rochester. In the year 1875, he married Nancy EWER, who departed this life three years later, leaving one child, Mrs. George BABER, of near Green Oak. He again married in 1879 to Clarrisa J. PENCE who with his four children, twelve grandchildren, one brother, two sisters and a host of friends are left to mourn the loss. In 1883 he became a member of the Methodist church of this place, having previously had his fellowship with the U.B. church. His loyalty and devotion to the Christian faith are worthy of imitation. He was one of the pioneers of Fulton county having at the time of his death, May 19, 1906, reached the age of 79 years 10 months and 28 days. Funeral services were conducted at Green Oak, Monday at 2 o'clock by the Rev. NORRIS of Macy, interment at Mt. Zion cemetery.
