Narrative:

     Charles A. Bacon was born about 1808 in Virginia.4,5
     Charles married first Susan Rowlette.6
     Charles married second Margaritte Gibson.7,8,9 Charles and Margaritte Gibson appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Trigg Co., Kentucky, enumerated 15 Aug 1850, reporting real estate valued at $1,134. Their children Malcolm and John were listed as living with them, as were his children by a prior marriage, Thomas, Matthew and Charles, as well as Cornelia C. Radcliff, age 9, who might have been her daughter by a previous marriage; William B. Bacon, a farmer age 39, who appears to have been his brother or other relative; James D. Landrum, a physican, apparently a boarder; and John D. Fords, age 15, relationship unknown.1
     Charles and Margaritte appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Cadiz, Trigg Co., Kentucky, enumerated 30 Sep 1860, reporting real estate valued at $5,000, and personal estate of $11,800. Their children Malcolm, John and H. were listed as living with them, as was a 27-year old doctor, who would appear to be Thomas, his son by his prior marriage, except he is listed as C. P. Bacon, born in Kentucky (it is possible the enumerator combined a listing for both Thomas and Charles). Also listed in the household was W. B. Bacon, age 49, born in Virginia, likely brother or other relative of Charles, and E. M. Rice, a 53-year-old plasterer.10
     He was a merchant and farmer.1
