George Broomall (1858), son of John and Sarah (Martin) Broomall, was born in Upper Chichester township, January 3, 1814. In early life he followed farming, cultivating a plantation which was part of a large tract patented to his maternal ancestor, Henry Reynolds, in 1682. He served as school director in the township in 1845, '48 and 1860. For many years he resided at Media, where he held office as notary public, acted as trustee and was largely engaged in settling estates. In 1870, he was elected County Auditor, and for a number of years served as prison inspector. 
Except in the single instance mentioned of County Auditor, Mr. Broomall declined to be named as a candidate for an elective office. He died October 9, 1902, in his eighty-eighth year.
