Little is known of Patrick's life journey until a notice appears in "The Queenslander" newspaper on 24th October 1885 which reads: "A Correspondent writing from Dulvadilla reports the sudden death of Dr. J. Bacon, who was found dead in his bed at the Carriers’ Arms Hotel on Sunday morning last. He had only arrived on the previous Wednesday and was then in a very bad state of health. The funeral took place at 4 o’clock in the afternoon and was attended by all the principal residents. By the kind permission of Mr. McKenzie, a grave had been dug in his paddock in a place he had set apart for this purpose and as there was no minister in the town, Mr. Ramm, of Gargett and Co., read the burial service."

Patrick Bacon is buried at Dulbydilla.
