Description Rudolph Spangler (1738-1811) was a York silversmith and clockmaker with a long career interrupted at periods when he served in the Revolutionary War and later when he held a series of public offices in York. He retired in 1792 and passed the business to his son, Jacob Spangler (1767-1843).
