This Settlement was founded in the late 1790's by Edinborough Smith and William Harshberger - whose families have called the Johnstown Area home for over 200 years.

More on Smith Murder - 18 Aug 1865

This newspaper clipping is taken from the Johnstown Tribune - 18 Aug 1865 on the murder of old Edenborough Smith. It contains some of the same information from an earlier posting. But as you will soon be reading - I've gotten my hands on some new information. And I still say something about this murder just doesn't add up right. As you will soon be reading - stories about who was where and when will be changing. I even contacted the Cambria County Coroner's office a couple of weeks ago - to see if they still has a file on the case. Alas, their records don't go back that far.
