Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in New York City but now live in Philadelphia. I have been doing family history research since 2003. This led me to Find A Grave, where I was able to find some graves of ancestors and request photos of others.
While photographing graves of people I was researching, I began to take pictures of other graves in the area. I try to limit my photos to older headstones. I realize that at some point in time, someone cared deeply for these people. I hope that by adding this information to Find A Grave I am preserving some family history for others.
If you have any questions on these names, please feel free to reach out to me.
Anyone who wishes to add information, correct or remove a memorial that I placed, please e-mail me. Please reference Find A Grave in the subject line.

RE: Maria Foster Van Horn-William B Van Horn
I see. I still have a scar on my nose where my dear childhood cat scratched me! :(

RE: William VanHorn
I never think of looking there! Thank you so very much! I am always amazed when I see people dying on or near their birthdays. And isn't it strange? His wife died of "softening of the brain" and he died of "congestion of the brain"! I wonder what that really means, medically speaking? (BTW, My brain is getting soft today after all the genealogy work I have done today...LOL!!)

RE: Maria Foster Van Horn-William B Van Horn
Thank you, Susan. You must live close-by. The death date is engraved on his stone. I just can't read it. I can see the "Apr" part, that's all...He was the great-grandfather of my husband's aunt.

Susan-

I cannot find any death record for Maria's husband, William Van Horn, and he does not have a Find-A-Grave memorial. (I could make him one, but I am not sure how to do it.)

Her memorial # is 36994016. I can only read part of the death date on his stone. It says "Died Apr..." I cannot make out the rest of it.

I would not ask you to make a special trip to the cemetery, but if you are ever nearby the plot (A19), would you please look at the inscription and let me know what it says about his death date? Or, maybe your copy of the photo is clearer than what is online?

Thank you.

RE: Lowe-Catanach Headstone at William Penn Cemetery
Thank you very much, Susan. I just heard from Kramer, and he said he had notified you. I guess it is OK.
