MICHAEL BACON AND HIS DESCENDANTS (ante, Vol. 56, pages 364.) – The following errata regarding the line of Michael BACON in Wrentham were the result of a personal examination of the Records, my previous information being sent by the town clerk:

IV. ALICE,2 dau. of Michael1 BACON (page 365), m. Thomas BANCROFT. It was his son Thomas (not the father) who died March 24, 1648.

13. VI. THOMAS,3 son of John2 BACON (p. 366), d. in Wrentham, April 10 (not 11) 1749.

10. JOHN3 BACON (p. 368). His widow did not m. second, Mch. 1, 1759, Joseph DRAPER, Jr. Joseph DRAPER, Jr., m. Lydia, b. Dec. 21, 1734, dau. of 23. Michael4 BACON (p. 372).

13. THOMAS3 BACON (p. 369) was among the selectmen for some years, and elected surveyor of highways, assessor of rates and town treasurer. There are six recorded grants from the town to him on March 3, 1717-18. He was a representative to the General Court, 1719-21.

14. JONATHAN4 BACON (p. 369). “In 1669,” should read 1699, “he was approved” etc.

26. JAMES4 BACON (p. 373). The dau. Nancy, should be Marcy, b. Sept. 21, 1737. A dau. Hannah was b. Aug. 15, 1739.

28. JOHN4 BACON (p. 374). The Wrentham records give, after dau. Huldah, a son Daniel b. Nov. 26, 1738, but against the entry, in a copy of the records now in the possession of a former town clerk of Wrentham, is the note “Mrs. COMYNS has old family Record which gives date Nov. 6, 1736.” The date Nov. 6, 1736, has been given to me by a descendant of this Daniel.
