▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Burton A. Slocum was born in 1849 at Rochester, N. Y., where he lived until he was four years old. He then lived in the town of Farmersville until 1878, and worked at farming with the exception of four years spent at cheese making. In 1878 he went to Emporium, Pa., and was car inspector for the Pennsylvania Ry. Co., several years, after which he bought a grocery and meat market in that place, which he conducted for eight years.

In 1905 he went to Oregon, where he owned a large timber tract, and operated a saw mill thereon for two years. He sold out his interests there in 1907 and came to Franklinville, where he has since lived.

Mr. Slocum did contracting and building here until 1913, erecting many residences, barns, factories, etc. He bought the old abandoned school buildings on Maple Avenue and converted them into five residences one of which he has since occupied.

Mr. Slocum gave up building operations when he became a public official, and his time is fully taken now as Commissioner of Streets, Water and Sewer systems. He has also served as village trustee. In 1869 he married Mary Jane Patterson.
