    • Old Foxcroft Maine:  Traditions and Memories with Family Records compiled by Mary Chandler Lowell, M.D., J.M., p. 43

      Among others who came so generously from France, in the French fleet, to assist our colonists in their struggle for independence, was one Jacob Lebroke (or La Bruque, as early records give it).

      Born in Paris, France, a skilled tailor by occupation, he was trained to arms under Baron Steuben, and did valiant service for the American cause. At the close of his military career he married Miss Sarah Gardner and they settled in Pembroke Mass. Miss Cynthia Gardner, a sister, became the wife of William Steadman (brother of John) who came here in 1822 and helped to clear the large farm at the Four Corners, so long in the Steadman family, now the property of John Miller.

      The Gardner sisters were of the well known Gardner family of Massachusetts and Maine. In 1783 the James LeBrokes moved to Hebron, and later to Paris; and were among the pioneer settlers of old Shepardsfield in the District of Maine. They had four children, James Jr., born in 1784 in Hebron, -- Sarah, born 1787, in Paris, -- Jacob, born in 1789, and Nicholas, born 1791, also in Paris.

      The father, James, was killed by a fall in 1812. The mother lived to within four months of her one hundredth birthday.
