BACON. – In Mr. L.B. BACON’s Genealogy, REGISTER, ante, Vol. 56, page 368, it states that the widow of (10) John3 BACON married second, Joseph DRAPER, Jr.  The widow Lydia (DEWING) BACON I believe died Nov. 17, 1754 (see Dedham Records, 1635-1845, page 85); and the Lydia who married, Mar. 1, 1759, Joseph DRAPER, Jr., was daughter of (23) Michael4 BACON, in the same genealogy, who was born Dec. 21, 1734 (see DRAPER Genealogy, page 160).

I fix the probable date of birth of Lydia DEWING, who married (10) John3 BACON, as 1660-1, from the fact that in the will of her father, Andrew DEWING, dated 8th of the 7th month 1677, recorded in Suffolk Co. Probate, he mentions her as his eldest daughter, and his other children were: Andrew, b. 1655; Rachel, bapt. 1658, probably d. young; Jonathan, b. 1663; Ann, bapt. 1666; and Deborah, youngest dau., b. 1668.
