Please help! Identify spider

Asked May 26, 2019, 6:12 PM EDT

I first kind of apologize that the spider is dead. I live in western Pennsylvania. I have had 2 of these spiders in 2 days on my porch at night. Legs were very long. Approx 3-4in diameter legs. Very aggressive. Legs appeared to be even in length. I am very sensitive to spider bites. Thank you!

Lawrence County Pennsylvania
