In Youth he received a fair education, and worked on a farm until his marriage, when he became manager of the same. In 1856 he immigrated with his family to America and settled in Pepin township, where he purchased a farm and resided until his death.
He was married in 1840 to Mary Little, who died here October 17, 1873. Mr. and Mrs. Broatch were blessed with ten children, four of whom died in infancy.
