Benjamin Franklin Bache, grandson of Benjamin Franklin, was a journalist and printer. Entries for 1784 were printed by Bernard Faÿ, "Paris, à la fin de l'ancien régime, vu par un petit garcon de Philadelphie," Franco-American Review 1(1936-37):317.

From the guide to the Benjamin Franklin Bache diary, 1782-1785, 1782-1785, (American Philosophical Society)

A leading Jeffersonian journalist and editor of the Aurora, one of the most important newspapers in early national Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin Bache was born in 1769, the eldest son of Richard and Sarah (Franklin) Bache, and grandson of Benjamin Franklin. In the fall of 1776, the eight year old Bache accompanied his grandfather and cousin William Temple Franklin to Paris. Provided with a excellent education there and in Geneva, he was also introduced to the printing trade through the Parisian printing house of Didot.

Returning to Philadelphia in 1785, Bache finished his education at the University of Pennsylvania and in 1790, he founded the Aurora, which quickly earned a reputation as a leading Republican organ, and just as quickly earned the wrath of Federalists for his unrelenting attacks on the Washington and Adams administrations.

Bache married Margaret Hartman Markoe in 1791, the eldest daughter of Francis and Elizabeth Markoe, wealthy planters from the Caribbean island of St. Croix. The couple had four children before Bache died in September 1798, a victim of the yellow fever epidemic. Margaret Bache continued to operate the Aurora for several months before handing operation of the newspaper to William Duane, an Irish-immigrant and Republican radical whom she eventually married.

Franklin Bache, a physician, teacher, and chemist, was the eldest son of Benjamin Franklin Bache and Margaret Hartman Bache. Educated at the University of Pennsylvania, he received his MD in 1814 after serving as a military surgeon during the War of 1812. Bache published numerous works on chemistry and taught at the Franklin Institute (1826-1832), the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science (1831-1841), and at Jefferson Medical College (1841-1864). He received honors internationally for his work, and served as secretary, vice-president, and president of the American Philosophical Society. He married Aglae Dabadie in 1818, with whom he had eight children.
