Chester County Images

Samuel Knox and Amanda Wylie Gill Knox
contributed by Michael McGarity

This page is an experiment; I'd like to include historic photos, family photos, etc. here that pertain to Chester County's history. The only catch is that the photos must be scanned, jpeg images with maximum compression. If the photos are of people, please indentify them. If they are of places or things, tell me what you know. I will include unknown images if you are sure they pertain to Chester County. Your contributions are necessary for this page to work. We'll see what happens. Send your photos "Zipped" to
