Thomas Smith (May 1, 1799 – April 12, 1876) was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Indiana.

Smith was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. In 1818, he moved to Rising Sun, Indiana, where he learned the trade of tanning. He then moved to Versailles, Indiana in 1821 and established a tanyard. Smith eventually became a colonel in the state militia, and member of the Indiana House of Representatives in 1829, 1830, and from 1833 to 1836. He also served in the state senate from 1836 to 1839.

Smith was elected as a Democratic Representative for Indiana's 4th congressional district to the Twenty-Sixth Congress, which lasted from March 4, 1839 until March 3, 1841. He was an unsuccessful candidate for election in 1840 to the Twenty-seventh Congress, but was elected in Indiana's 3rd congressional district to the Twenty-eighth and Twenty-ninth Congresses (March 4, 1843 – March 3, 1847). He was not a candidate for renomination in 1846. Smith was a delegate to the Indiana constitutional convention in 1850.
