History of Chippewa Valley
Published 1891-2

Peter Broatch (deceased) was born near Gretna Green, Dunfrieshire, Scotland, about the year 1815, and died in Pepin August 1874. He was a son of Andrew and Hannah (Davison) Broatch.

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. The others are: John, living on a farm near the old homestead, married Martha Johnston (who died July 18, 1889, leaving eight children: Margaret J. (Mrs. M. Varnum), Mary E., Hannah, Martha, Jessie M., Catherine B., Elizabeth A. and John J.) Hannah now Mrs. F.D. Wartinbee of La Cross, Wis., David W., who now owns a part of the old homestead, and is engaged in farming and the manufacture of rafting pins, supplying a lumbering firm at Stillwater, Minn., Andrew who married Elizageth J. Reid, who bore him two children, James P., and Andrew Ema (lived on a portion of the old homestead until his death January 24, 1883); Mary J., living in Pepin township and Margaret A., who died in January 1865.

Peter Broatch was a quiet industrious man, who commanded the respect of all who knew him. In politics he was a free-trade republican, and in religion a Presbyterian.
