David Bacon (1771 – August 27, 1817) was an American missionary in the then unsettled territory of Michigan. He was born in Woodstock, Connecticut. He worked primarily with the Ottawa and Chippewa tribes, although they were not particularly receptive to his Christian teachings. He founded the town of Tallmadge, Ohio, which later became the center of the Congregationalist faith in Ohio. He died in Hartford, Connecticut.[1]

He was the father of Rev. Leonard Bacon[2]
