Richard Smith ~ January 25, 1769 – October 1, 1823 

My name is Richard Smith. I was born on January 1, 1769 and passed on October 1, 1823.

I am the brother of Thomas, son of William. I was admitted to the Bar Association in 1791 and first appeared in the county courts that year. I was a highly esteemed member of the local Bar. I was elected to the State House of Representatives in 1803.

In 1821, I was appointed by Governor Heister to the office of Register and Recorder. I died in the Huntingdon County Court Room while defending his honor. The Court later ruled in his favor.
