DR. CHARLES B. SMITH

DR. CHARLES B. SMITH,  a practicing physician of Newtown and vicinity, obtained the degree of Doctor of Medicine from Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia in 1884.  He became successor to his father, Elias E. SMITH, M.D., who for more than thirty years was a practitioner of the same place-a man of gentle and benevolent character, and signally skillful in his art.

            Dr. Charles B SMITH descends from original county families.  His father was of Quaker ancestry, being of the Wrightstown SMITHS, whose progenitor settled at Windy-Bush Place in 1684.  His mother was of the WYNKOOP-MCNAIR families, early Bucks county settlers, at or near Holland, they being of Presbyterian lineage, sturdy, patriotic yeomen, actively identified with early colonial history in Pennsylvania.  He married M. Anna STACKHOUSE, daughter of Jacob W. and Maria  PALMER STACKHOUSE, of Fallsington, Pennsylvania, in 1887.  Dr. SMITH comes of a family of physicians of this name who for a period of many years have been conservators of health in the middle-eastern section of the county, useful citizens, able and progressive practioners.  Dr. SMITH is and has been identified with the interest of the public schools and health board of his native place, and is affiliated with various local, state and national medical societies.
