Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Rachel Pierce Broom

                    Rachel Pierce Broom was a wife of Jacob Broom (signer of the U.S. Constitution), mother of eight (including Congressman James M. Broom), and grandmother of Congressman Jacob Broom.  I could find no other information on the Internet about this woman who lived during the founding of our nation.  I hope that her posterity has more information about her.
