Walk out to the road and go north to the two distinctive
Slocum stones. To the left you'll see the stones for
Art and Hazel (Slocum) Broadley. Since the Broadley family is
scattered in other parts of the cemetery, we'll pause
here to tell the their story.
Art Broadley was one of four sons of Joseph Broadley.
He, like the other Broadley sons became involved in
the construction trades and Art with his wife Hazel
designed and built the Slocum House (restaurant). Harold
and Robert were also builders. John Murray got into the
plumbing business and his family is still in business
as Broadley Plumbing on Main Street.
The father, Joseph Broadley, was a major building contractor who came
to Fair Oaks by 1898. He built the Methodist Church, the
Fair Oaks school (now the Club House), the Presbyterian Church
in the village, and one of Fair
Oaks most stylish homes, his own, on Sunset between
Chicago and Kenneth. Additionally, he built many of the
best structures in Fair Oaks, including the Cunningham
House on the north side of Sunset at the end of New York.
He is buried with his wife, Jane Broadley.
