Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - Edward Randolph Slocum, Sr.
Edward R. Slocum of Long Branch died yesterday after a short sickness, aged 67 years. His death was caused by
euremic (sic) poisoning, following an attack of dysentery. Mr. Slocum was born at New York, but since his
childhood he had lived at Long Branch. He was well known in business circles, being at the head of the
firm of Edward R. Slocum & Son, wholesale and retail dealers in coal and wood. The town hall at Long Branch
was built largely through his efforts. In politics he was a staunch Democrat, but he never sought public office.
He prided himself on being a good farmer, and in addition to his other business interests he superintended a farm
which he owned in Eatontown township.
Mr. Slocum was married on April 19th, 1863, to Mary J. Woolley, a sister of ex-Mayor Thomas R. Woolley of Long Branch. She
and four sons survive him. The sons are John W. Slocum, Edward R. Slocum, Jr., Thomas L. Slocum and Haslam Slocum.
(Per death notice Mr. Slocum was 67 years, 4 months and 2 days.)
