JACOB N. BRUBAKER, who resides about two miles out of Carlisle in the township of North Middleton, on a well-cultivated farm of forty acres, is a son of David O. Brubaker, grandson of David Brubaker, and a great-grandson of John Brubaker, who came to American from Germany in 1710. David Brubaker, the grandfather, was a farmer, and was a very worthy and reliable man.

In 1880 he purchased his present farm, upon which he built a barn, besides making many other improvements.
