My Uncle Jim rose from working on his family's Idaho farm to a respected labor leader for the Hodcarriers and General Laborers Union. He was also a member of the Shriners and the Vallejo Yacht Club.

Seven Siblings: Baby Broton (1891-1891); Jennie Harriet; Alice Mary; John Edward; Raymond Henry; Louise Margaret; Rose Cecilia.

Spouses:
1. Marie V. Farnsworth (1905-1941) married 1924, born in Washington, died in Vallejo, CA. [They had a daughter, Margaret M.(Peggy) born approx 1928 in Nevada. According to Jim Broton's obit, Peggy evidently married because her last name is Bardocos.]
2. Frances Louise Narvin (1914-1970) married in 1944, born in Ohio, died in Solano Co, CA. [They had a daughter, Patricia born 20 Mar 1948 in Vallejo.]

From his "Vallejo Times Herald" obit...Survived by his wife, Frances, and two daughters, Mrs. Margaret Marie Bardocos of Stateline and Patricia Mary Broton of Vallejo. He also is survived by four sisters and a brother: Mrs. Louise Barber, Spokane, WA; Mrs. Rose Simpson, Pullman, WA; Mrs. Jen Austin, Spokane; Mrs. Alice Morford, Spokane; and Jack Broton, Arizona. Interment will be in Golden Gate National Cemetery, San Bruno. (Note: this turned out to be incorrect. Skyview Memorial Lawn verified on 4-21-2014 that he is buried in their cemetery.)
