Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have used Find A Grave many times in researching my own Family Tree. I am grateful for the time spent by those volunteers who provided me with information I might not have been able to collect. I enjoy the search and wanted to help others by doing the same for them.
I also enjoy being outdoors and do not always wait for a request to photograph headstones in a cemetery or if I am out for a request I will photograph other stones in the area while I am there and post them as well.
It is a group effort by all contributors and families to provide the information on the Memorial pages.
I Live in Southern Chester County, Pa. and would be willing to photograph graves in that area and in Northern Delaware as well.
If I have created a Memorial Page for a person in your Family I would be glad to Transfer it to you for your record keeping.

Horace Reven
James and Emma McGinnis
Hi Theresa,

I'm going to accept your two edits changing James and Emma's last name from McGinnis to McGinness. I know that the majority of the McGinnis line from William and Mary (Reven) used the last name of McGinnis but several of the boys switched to McGinness. Some of the children of these boys still used the McGinnis version. I have several death certificates with McGinness on them for some of these folks but the census has their last name spelled a lot of different ways. For now I will switch the ones with death certificates or grave stones to McGinness. The families will look a little messed up but I don't have enough supporting documentation to say that this McGinness name is their legal name. Thanks for showing me that gravestone with that spelling and have a great nite..Horace

I would welcome the transfer of the Fahey's. They are related to me through the wife of my great uncle. Thank you for the offer. Keith

Thanks for posting the photos to the other records Theresa. It took me a while to figure out all the John Fahey's (if I did). Regards, Keith

RE: Esbenshade Pictures
Thank you so very much. I forwarded them to my Mom who's 80+. I have been looking for her people for years. She is 1.5 hours away and thrilled to see where her grand parents are. She hopes to be able to make the drive to see them. Thanks again. Kathy
