Edward Langworthy

Edward Langworthy (1738–1802) was an American teacher who was a delegate to the Articles of Confederation.

Edward was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1785. He married a young lady named Wright, and the couple had four children. He also bought a part interest in a newspaper The Maryland Journal & Baltimore Advertiser and became its editor. In 1787 he sold his interest, and became an instructor at the Baltimore Academy.

In 1795 Langworthy was made the clerk of customs for Baltimore, a post he held until his death. He died of Yellow fever on November 2, 1802 and was buried at the Old Episcopal Church. The church was torn down in 1891, and details of any re-interment are unknown.
