The Evening Star, Monday, April 9, 1900
Aged Citizen Passes Away
General Peter F. Bacon died yesterday afternoon at Garfield Hospital.
He had gone there for an operation, which was duly performed, but owing to his advanced age he did not recover from the influence of the anesthetic. The news of his death came with the shock of sudden surprise to a large circle of friends and acquaintances in this city. Although to those within the immediate home circle it was believed the outcome of the operation was doubtful. The remains were removed to the family home, 336 Indiana avenue, where he had resided for so many years. Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1 o'clock, at the family residence. Interment will be in Congressional
Cemetery and will be private. There will be no pallbearers. In spite of his age -- he was in his eighty seventh year -- General Bacon enjoyed good health and went about a good deal, mingling with men and keeping in touch with current events. He had for many years been active in public affairs in the District, and that fact gave him an extended acquaintance, which he maintained to a considerable extent up to the time of his death. General Bacon was born here, his father having come to this city when it became the seat of government to engage in business as a grocer. General Bacon and his brother succeeded their father in the business, and their store at the southeast corner of Pennsylvania avenue and 7th street was for many years one of the prominent places of business in the city.
