Bacon, Daniel Lucius, an old and prominent citizen, was born in Lansing, January 17, 1815, a son of Daniel Bacon, a native of Connecticut, who came to Lansing in an early day. His wife was Anna, daughter of Capt. B. Strong, and they had five children: Jane, wife of Dr. Lemuel Powers; Sarah, wife of Dr. Daniel Johnson; George, Phcebe, wife of Joshua Davis, and Daniel L. The latter was educated in the district schools, and lost his father when a child. His mother married again and he remained with her until the age of twenty one, when he came into possession of fifty seven acres of land, a portion of his father's farm on which he moved and e ected a dwelling, later trading this place for the one he now conducts. He has added to his real estate from time to time, now owning two farms, comprising 248 acres.
