    Seeking pictures of York House

    STEPHEN HOSMER Wayfarer

      I hope someone can help me. There was a man named Jay Cooke (1821-1905) who lived near the town of Elkin Park, Pennsylvania.  He was a banking financier helping get money to build the railroad at time.  I have been told that he had a house in Elkins Park, PA or a nearby town. The house which stood until the early 1950s had the name "York House"  I believe the house was located on old York Road.  I am writing this to see if anyone could find a picture of this house. Yes, I am related to him about 8 generations away. Any help you can provide me would be great.
