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
