Dr. Slocum arrived in 1833 from the State of New York, and succeeded to the practice of Doctor Davidson. He was a man of strong points, and soon made an impression, financially and professionally. He had considerable reputation, and is said to have been a bold operator. He closed his practice, and immigrated to Michigan, in the spring of 1846, where he deceased, after a residence of some two or three years. He was a relative of the late Elias Slocum.
