Bennett Baucom1

#1979, b. say 1785
Last Edited13 Jun 2003
CommentCandidate for father of James E. Balkcom due to Johnston County location in 1810. But Bennett married in 1809 and apparently had a stable family. The Baucom Book does indicate a son before 1810 gone by 1830, unnamed. This would be the u10 male listed in the 1810 census, but who is unnamed in the will. 
Birth*say 1785Wake County, North Carolina, USA; Census says 1765-84; Baucom Book estimates 17851,2 
Cen-Head*1810NC Johnston Co Census 1810; Johnston County, North Carolina, USA; "Baucum", males 1 26-44, 1 u10; female 1 16-25; 3 slaves1 
Comment*Baucom Book has lots on Bennett Baucom of Johnston County in 1810. Son of John Baucom and Fanny Jordan of Wake County. Married 7 May 1809 in Wake County to Delilah Ann (Della/Dilly) Dunn. In 1820 and 1830 lived in Wake County alongside his father. 
Will*25 August 1832will recorded 4 Feb 1833 Carroll Co, TN. Names wife and children.2

Birth*from 1754 to 1763Birthdate range is from census records and tax lists. James' appearance on the 1784 tax list would make him age 21 or older then. His appearance on the 1804 tax list would have made him age 21-50 then.1,3,4,5
