Baptism John Edward Smyth was baptized In Kay Ryan's family group sheets he is said to have been baptized at Cedar Creek Blue Ridge. No date is given. If this is true, then he was baptized as an adult since he came from England in the late 1700's as an adult. I suspect he converted to Catholic when he met his wife (MVW.) 
Birth*1771 He was born in 1771 at Scotland Birth year from Kay Ryan's notes.1 
MARRIAGE*1794 He married Anna Margaret Ruffner, daughter of Simon Ruffner and Catherine Alice Griffin, in 1794 at Goshenhoppen, PA; Per notes from Mary Louise Blakely's descendants the couple was married by Father Gallitzin. Marriage year taken from DAR records of Annie Michel Alexander #91652

The migration from Goshenhoppen took place in 1787-89 when Anna Margaret was 16. There is no record of John Smith in Goshenhoppen so I believe the statement about being married by Prince Gallitzin has validity.1,2
 
Death*after 1816 He died after 1816 at Latrobe, Westmoreland County, PA, He is mentioned in subscribers list who promise to pay Simon Ruffner and John Rogers for an Altar at Sportsmen's Hall. Taken from "Illustrated History of St. Vincent Archabby." 
Religion* He was Roman Catholic

Here is a clue about why John settled in Murrinsville: "Murrinsville, a hamlet of but little importance, derived its name from the MURRIN family, who settled in its immediate locality. It is noted, however, as the site of St. Alphonsus' (Roman Catholic) Church, and can also boast of a blacksmith's shop, store, and post office. The town plat was laid out about 1827, by John Murrin."1 
Nationalty* The nationality of John Edward Smyth was (an unknown value.) 
Education*  He was said to be a "learned Scotch-Irishman who had a classical education and was at one time a professor in the College at Sheffield England.1 
Biography*1791  Described as a "learned Scotch-Irishman, who had a classical education and was at one time a professor in the College at Sheffield, England". A family story says that "One of his ancestors, having been disposessed of his estate by Cromwell, learned the trade of a blacksmith and after the battle of Culloden shod Price Charlie's horse with the shoes backward and thus contributed to his escape."
"Mr. Smythe came to America about 1791, and was very particular that his name be spelled Smythe and not Smith."

June 2011 MVW
I've searched rather extensively to determine why and how John Smyth arrived in Murrinsville Pennsylvania. the only record of him is in the "History of St. Aplhonsus Church Murrinsville" by John L. Canova. St. Alphonsus was not founded until 1841 but it houses records from much earlier. John and his wife Margaret are called Schmidt in the records but I am sure it is the right couple. They were witness at the baptism of a baby named McCalley and their own child's (Katherine) baptism was recorded. There were three communities within the area, Saint Patrick's at Sugar Creek in Armstrong County and Sportsman Hall in Westmoreland seem to have actual buildings. The other group was housed at John Murrin's home and they drew from Murrinsille as well as Slippery Rock. A priest would visit periodically - riding the circuit. The Ruffners were deeply involved in the founding of Sportsman Hall and John Smith was listed as a contributor near Slippery Rock.

The Ruffners came from Goshenhoppen and it's possible John Smith did as well. Aparently he came right after the revolution. I couldn't find any record of his occupation or reason for coming. Apparently he converted to Catholicism when he married a Ruffner daughter. Family stories say he insisted on spelling his name Smyth. Interesting that there are no records showing that spelling for him. in 1791.1 
Emigration*1791 He emigrated in 1791.1 
Living*circa 1815 He was living circa 1815; "Having received an honorable discharge, he left the city of Buffalo for New Orleans to visit his parents, going by way of Erie, thence to Meadeville and down the Allegheny river in a barge, paying his passage by helping run the boat. All was then new and wild in this region. He was delayed in Pittsburg and met his future wife. He later returned to marry her." Since the couple was married in 1816 this note suggest that the John Smyth family lived in Pittsburgh starting about 1813-1814. This squares nicely with stories that say his daughter Susanna lived in Murrinsville, Pennsylvania until she was age 10 (she was born in 1804). Now the question is why did he go to Pittsburgh?

John Smyth was connected with the Ruffners who were friends with the Bishop. Remember that James Blakely and the Bishop were close. This is probably the connection. 
Note1833  In 1833 He might have had brothers (or sons) named Jacob and David as they were listed as subscribers to Sportsmans Hall in 1833.

Also there are two wills in Washington County Pennsylvania for Smyths. Here is the "look up" request information:

Death*12 November 1885  Obituary of Mrs. Susan BlakelyNov. 12, 1885
Thursday evening at six o’clock, after an illness of fourteen weeks, Mrs. Susan Blakely, wife of James Blakely, departed this life at the ripe age of 81 years. She had been in feeble health for sometime previous
to her late illness during which her sufferings were intense. She bore her afflictions with divine resignation. No word of complaint marred the beauty of her patient endurance. She was in a precarious
condition some weeks before her demise, and several times was thought to be dying, but her wonderful power of resistance proved effectual in warding off the approach of Death, and she was spared to her dear
ones for a little while longer, she was bravely cheerful from first to last. The purity and holiness of her life and character, are beyond expression, and her influence will ever be a beacon light to those who knew and loved her. She always had a gentle word and smile for one and all. When suffering most her submission to the will of God became but the greater. She was sustained by His hand which was waiting to help her over the dark river into the glory of eternal rest. When Death claimed her He left her sweetly fair, she seemed “not dead but sleeping.” The lifeless form lay in its ethereal and solemn loveliness. Her hands folded on her breast, her eyes closed as though in dreamless slumber, having no sign of the Destroyer’s hand, save in the hue that blanched the lips, on which a smile of holy calm lingered and a voiceless prayer hung suspended.
The funeral took place on Monday last at 9 o’clock A,M. from the German Catholic church. A large concourse of friends followed the remains. The solemn Requiem Mass was chanted by her son, Rev.
Aloysius Blakely, of the Passionist Monastery, with Rev. P. Cellestine, prior as Deacon, and Rev. P.severing, sub. Deacon, and Rev. P. Fideles, master of Ceremonies.Mrs. Blakely was born in Butler County on the 15th of Sep. 1804. In 1810 she, in company with her parents removed to Pittsburgh, where she resided until many years after her marriage, then she came to St. Marys, where she has resided since. Mrs. Blakely leaves to mourn her demise two sons and three daughters. Thus ends the spotless life of a truly good woman. May she rest in peace.By one who knew and loved her.From The Elk Co. Thurs. 19th 1885; "Early Phases of St. Mary's" states that Susan Blakely died in 1885 at age 81. Her illness and death are discussed at length in Sebastian Wimmer's diary housed at the St. Marys Historical Society.2 
Obituary13 November 1885 Obnituary of Susananna Smyth was (from newspaper article) "Mother died this evening," was the tenor of a dispatch received last evening by Mr. L. J. Blakely, announcing the death of his mother, at her late house in Maryland, at the ripe age of eighty-two. So has passed away to eternal peace a venerable woman, who, in all relations of life, daughter, wife and mother, was as perfect as is possible for aught of earth to be. It has been said and written of her during her life, in the words of the Psalmist; "She riseth also while it is yet night and giveth meat to her household and a portions to her maidens," for her first care was for the comfort of others than herself. Her whole life was one of faith, hope and love, and with her the greatest of all charity. All creeds and races shared in the benefactions her hands silently dispensed. For years possessed of ample means, she held them as part of the belongings of the poor, and on her head rested their blessings. She visited the sick and the dying; made smooth the path of the weary, and gave peace of the afflicted. She was married in 1827, with the venerable husband enjoying fifty-five years of wedded life up to his death in 1882, being happily permitted the great joy of a golden wedding on the 4th of November, 1877; and their joy on that occasion was heightened from the fact that it was before their own son, their youngest, Rev. A. M. Blakely, they renewed the vows of love and fidelity first made fifty years before. The deceased lady was all her life a pious, devout Catholic, and she passed to the better world surrounded by children and grand children and fortified with the sacraments of the Mother Church she loved so devotedly. All who came under her control, servants as well as children were the objects of her anxious solicitude and tender love. Her nature was firm but gentle. Not one of her children ever heard from her lips an angry of fretful word to her husband. Her example was edifying; and if reproof were necessary her children received if from her lips tempered with maternal affection. She came from a long line of honorable ancestry. Her family came to America in 1686, and settled in Delaware, or as it the was "the Counties of New Castle, Kent and Sussex on the Delaware." From thence the family spread through Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The family name was Ruffner. The deceased was the sixth generation. Of your charity pray for the repose of her soul. on 13 November 1885. 
Burial*16 November 1885 She was buried on 16 November 1885 at St. Marys Cemetery, St. Mary's, Elk County, PA, St. Marys Cemetery; Old Section E - Blakely lot. 
Name Variation  Susananna Smyth was also known as Susanne.2 
Married Name4 November 1827  As of 4 November 1827,her married name was Blakely.3,4 
CENSUS1850*1850 She appeared on the CENSUS in 1850. 
CENSUS1860*1 June 1860 She appeared on the census on 1 June 1860 at Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA; James is shown with personal property of $600. His daughter Susanna listed as a music teacher and his son Laurie as a clerk at age 17. The city directory gives the street address of 103 Elm. Elm Street is called Edmond in 2003. Evidently the family moved shortly after the census as a book about early St. Marys says that she moved there in 1860.5 
CENSUS1870*1 June 1870 She appeared on the census on 1 June 1870 at St. Mary's, Elk County, PA; There are two grown children i.e. Laurie listed as a lawyer with personal property of $400. and Susana with personal property of $4,000 living at home. They are probably there to look after aging parents.6
