Bio and Links
Bio Photo Are you a genealogy addict ? Ask me about joining GoClub-Belmont County, a private social networking site where members share info. and photos regarding Belmont Co. genealogy.

Website: www.belmontcountyohio.net

I'm also looking for volunteers to help add names to Belmont County cemeteries.

My brother "Skip" and I enjoy genealogy. He's my expert regarding Belmont county, OH. We both take photos of tombstones, especially of family members. Some of the surnames are Bain, Bane, Blaine, Budd, Curtis, Giffen, Giffin, Griffith, Haines, Hepburn, Hinkle, Keyser, Long, Milligan, Pond, Spears, Shahan, and Terrill.

I started using the FAG app on my iPhone to photograph tombstones and simultaneously record their gps location. It's so easy. I enjoy using it.

UPDATE: Skip started a GIFFEN DNA Group.

In addition to Belmont county, OH, we explore Ohio and Brooke counties in WV. I travel between Belmont Co and Columbus, OH. So, I make a few stops along the way, such as Cambridge or Zanesville.

I look for family tombstones across the country and try to link them back to Belmont Co., OH, Ohio Co., WV, and PA.

I have several GIFFEN / GIFFIN family trees at ancestry.com. There's my Giffen family which started with Robert and Mary (Bane) Giffen. Plus a family tree for the Andrew Giffin family. I recently started a Simon Giffin tree.

My ancestry.com tree name is "Terry Magyar"

More recently, I've added family trees for Giffens/Giffins in the following Ohio counties; Athens, Butler, Coshocton, Licking, Miami & Hamilton, and Ross County. Many of these Scotch-Irish lines can be followed back to the late 1700s, in Penn.

I presently live in Franklin Co., OH, but grew up in Belmont Co., OH.


Please contact me (use the EDIT function) if need an item corrected of if you have additional information regarding any of the these families.


I highly recommend the Cumberland Trail Genealogical Society's book "Your Guide to Belmont Co. Cemeteries". ($20 + shipping)

RE: Mary Giffen
Hi Terry,

As far as I could tell, yes, she was. I saw the note to look for her husband, which I did. I wasn't able to find another Giffen anywhere near where Mary was buried. According to findagrave there is one other Giffen headstone with two names attached to it: Gertrude and William Herbert Giffen. Was Mary's husband named William and perhaps married twice? If so, there is already of photo of that one, but I don't know where it is located.

Let me know if there is anything else you are hoping to find.
Jennifer

RE: Your message
I thought I sent an edit for complete dates on the Blackfords in Weeks. Wouldn't be the first time I hit the wrong key.

Hi Terry, sorry to hear about your back, hope it gets better soon! I have people looking for Fry's in Peninsula where other family members are buried...think might be there. Still haven't had time to figure out why I thought at Upper Wegee. Thanks for communicating and your efforts.

Fry at Upper Wegee
Hi Terry, thanks for looking for Daniel Fry...while you were there did you happen to find any other Fry's who are also supposed to be there perhaps? I have to go back and walk through steps to see why I determined both Daniel and twin brother Abraham are at Upper Wegee Cemetery. Do any of your Belmont County records show where they might be buried? Thanks for your efforts. I will check with Peninsula Cemetery where his father and other son are buried. They might be there. thank you!
