James Smith Signer of The Declaration of Independence
1719-1806
Representing Pennsylvania at the Continental Congress
Born: Circa 1719
Birthplace: Dublin, Ireland
Education: Informal, Classical education. Apprenticed law with brother George. (Lawyer)
Work: Resume with dates.
Died: July 11, 1806
James Smith was born in Ireland around 1719. He emigrated to Cheshire County Pennsylvania with his family when he was ten or twelve years old. His father was a successful farmer and James benefited from a good, simple, classical education from a local Church Minister. He later studied law at the office of his older brother George, in Lancaster. Smith was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar at age twenty-six, and set up an office in Cumberland County, near Shippensburg. This was a frontier area at the time, so he spent much of his time engaged in surveying, only practicing law when such work was available. After four or five years he moved back to more populated York, where he might practice law exclusively.

This is a very rare 32 Star silk hankerchief from the entry of the 32nd State Minnesota in 1858.

Voted into the Union on May 11, 1858 and becoming a State on July 4th 1858.

Extremely high quality of fine silk with hand sewn gold stars on gold silk background. A true work of art. The quality on this is so high I cant believe they made very many.

Authentic 1914 Princess Christmas Brass Box

The Princess Mary 1914 Christmas Gift

In November 1914, an advertisement was placed in the national press inviting monetary contributions to a 'Sailors & Soldiers Christmas Fund' which had been created by Princess Mary, the seventeen year old daughter of King George V and Queen Mary. The purpose was to provide everyone wearing the King's uniform and serving overseas on Christmas Day 1914 with a 'gift from the nation'.

The response was truly overwhelming, and it was decided to spend the money on an embossed brass box, based on a design by Messrs Adshead and Ramsey. The contents varied considerably; officers and men on active service afloat or at the front received a box containing a combination of pipe, lighter, 1 oz of tobacco and twenty cigarettes in distinctive yellow monogrammed wrappers. Non-smokers and boys received a bullet pencil and a packet of sweets instead. Indian troops often got sweets and spices, and nurses were treated to chocolate. Many of these items were dispatched separately from the tins themselves, as once the standard issue of tobacco and cigarettes was placed in the tin there was little room for much else apart from the greeting card.
