There’s no-one in Fermanagh of that name in the tithe applotment records for the 1820s & 30s, nor in Griffiths Valuation (1848 – 1864). There’s one Bacom in the whole of Ireland in the 1901 census:

As you’ll see he was living in Fermanagh, in the parish of Derryvullan. He was Church of Ireland. In the absence of any other information you might want to look up the parish records to see if there are any other Bacoms there. The early parish records for Derryvullan South have been destroyed in the 1922 fire in Dublin but the records for Derryvullan North go back to 1803. A copy is held in PRONI, Belfast. (They are not on-line). If the family was RC, RC records for that parish don't start till 1841.

The 1821 census for the parish of Derryvullen has also survived and again a copy is held in PRONI.
