There seems to be some confusion about the surname of Gabriel Williamson Harrison’s wife. Was she a Gordon? A Webb? A Burruss? A Harrison? Actually, she was all of these.
Sarah Gordon Webb was born on April 24, 1852, the daughter of Henry Webb and his young wife, Susan E Gordon, of “Hampstead,” New Kent County, Virginia. Her father was 54 years old at the time of her birth, but she was the eldest of three children born to the couple. She had two brothers, both with the given name, Henry, who were born after her.

Montford Stokes Bacon, son of Young Henry Bacon, was born about 1823 in Lunenburg County, Virginia. By 1850, he was living with his wife and first child in Canton, Madison County, Mississippi, and there he remained until I lost him after 1880. In the Stump Bridge Cemetery in Canton, Madison County, Mississippi there is found a Montford S Bacon, according to findagrave.com, but no dates are given in the information for the grave. No dates. No image of a headstone, or anything, so we are unable to determine for sure that this is our man. The Stump Bridge Cemetery is fast disappearing, too. My guess it is our Montford buried there along with a Henry Bacon. Continue reading
Still researching Bacons. And, I ran into another puzzling record. When the 1900 census was taken, George E Craig (married eldest daughter of Robert Edward Bacon) was found living alone in Evening Shade, Sharp County, Arkansas, and was listed as a widower. Yet, the tombstone he shares with his wife, Addie C, states she died 14 years after this census was taken, on Feb 14, 1914??? This was definitely the correct George E Craig, unless there was more than one in Sharp County who were physicians. So…I had to see if I could find his wife. Estranged wife, perhaps? But first, I looked him up in the 1910 census. Still living in Evening Shade, Arkansas…but, in this census he is listed as married and for 40 years, no less, and also as living on his own income, rather than a physician, so apparently had retired. Obviously, the couple were living apart. So, on to find Addie. Continue reading
