      Daniel Bacon (22) was born the son of William (2) and Priscilla Wilson Bacon in Nuneaton, England in 1801.   He was baptised December 26, 1801 in Nuneaton, England.   He was a coal miner by trade.   He married " Martha Taylor " on December 25, 1820 also in Nuneaton, England.   They had 4 known children together.

29.  Daniel Bacon  ~  b. 1831  ~  d. ???
30.  John Bacon  ~  b. 1832/3  ~  d. ???

Family Notes:

The year of the birth for all the above children is calculated based on their baptismal records.   Milicent (27) was baptised on December 31, 1826 in Measham, Derbyshire, England.   Samuel (28) was also baptised in Measham, Derbyshire, England in July, 1828.   Daniel (29) was baptised on December 18, 1831 in Stockingford, Warwickshire, England.   John (30) was born in New Invention, Willenhall, Staffordshire, England.


      Samuel Bacon (28) was born the 2nd child and 1st son of Daniel (22) and Martha Taylor Bacon in 1828 in Measham, Derbyshire, England.   At the age of 11, according to the census, he was listed as a coal miner like his father.   His brother Daniel, age 9, was also listed as a coal miner and they were at that time living in Wolverhampton, England.

      In 1850 he married " Harriet Ward " who was born in December, 1832 in England.   Her parent's names are currently unknown.   In the year 1851 they were noted as living on Oxford Street in the parish of St. George, Wolverhampton.   However by 1861 they had moved to Bloxwich, near Walsall, where there was evidently more mining work.

      In the 1871 census, Samuel (28) and his family had moved to the far north of England in County Durham.   It appears they may have been looking for a better life in the countryside, and this may be what inspired them to emigrate to America 15 years later.

      In the 1881 census, however, they are noted living in Burtwood, Staffordshire.   Evidently it didn't work out for them in County Durham and they returned to this area for more work.

      In the late 1880's they evidently decided that the best thing for them was moving to America to look for more mining work.   They are believed to have landed in Philadelphia in ca. 1888.

      They moved to and resided in Mahanoy City, Schuylkill Cty, PA. which was a coal mining town during that time.   They are both believed to have died there sometime between 1900 and 1910 since they don't either showup in the 1910 census.   Together they reportedly had twelve children.   Only six of their names are currently known.

How Lawrence "Larry"Jay Gorrell (154) died:

     My Aunt lived in a house that is close to where the current post office is located in New Hope, Pennsyvania.    Her kitchen table sat infront of a large picture window where she would sit in the evenings drinking coffee and watching the traffic coming down the hill to the west of her home.

     Her son Larry (154) was serving in the Navy in 1972.   He got off his ship in San Francisco, California for a 30 leave.   He first thought about getting a plane ticket back home but decided to go across country by bus and also by hitching a ride when he could so that he could see more of the U.S. and he phoned his Mom to let her know.

     On the night of September 22, 1972 while sitting at her table she saw a car accident just after dark on the hill.   She called the accident into the police and reported that someone had run off the road and hit a telephone pole.   She watched as the fire trucks, ambulance, and tow truck came and walked down asking one of the firefighters there what had happened.   He told her that a man that was by himself had run off the road and hit the pole and he had hit and cut his head but would be alright.   She was relieved and went back home.

     About 3 hours later, and after getting ready for bed, she glanced out the window and she noticed another ambulance appear at about the same area and she wasn't sure why but watched until it left.   About two hours later she was woken up by a phone call telling her that her son Larry (154) had been in a car wreck and that he was hurt and was at the hospital.   She went to the hospital and Larry (154) died not long after mid-night from his injuries.

     As the night wore on she heard from the doctor that if it had not taken so long to get him to the hospital they may have been able to save him.   She asked the doctor what he meant and why did it take so long.   He stated that a man was in a car accident just west of New Hope and after he was brought to the hospital he asked, "How is the guy that was walking along the road that I hit?" .... The doctor, not knowing what he was talking about, requested that another ambulance go back to the scene to see what they could find.   They found Larry (154) about 30 foot away from where the car had hit him and the pole.   Margaret (100) was stunned .... she not only watched the accident but was within feet of her dying son .....
