Jacob Broom

Jacob Broom was a native of Delaware, and a descendant of one of the most respectable families of that State. He received a thorough education, and became an eminent lawyer early in life. Having been chosen to represent his native State in the convention that framed the constitution, Mr. Broom became a prominent member of that body. He was afterward an active man in the politics of his native State. Some of his descendants are now among the distinguished citizens of Pennsylvania.
