Frederick Godcharles wrote a syndicated daily column for newspapers. The article I'm citing appeared in multiple Pennsylvania newspapers on 16 September 1924. I chose this newspaper because I was capturing the image and this newspaper had the clearest print and the most compact column form.
Godcharles, Frederick, "Todays's Story In Pennsylvania History: John Smilie, Member of General Assembly and Congress, Statesman, Born September 16, 1742." [Pennsylvanians, Past and Present] Indiana (Pennsylvania) Evening Gazette, 16 September 1928, p. 3, cols 3-4, image copy, Newspapers.com (https://www.newspapers.com/image/517799759: accessed 31 July 2021)
I am not sure if I should have used a colon following "History".
I also included in brackets the name of the daily column as it appeared in most newspapers and don't know if there should be punctuation with the bracketed title
