Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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 or Ohio Co., WV.

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)

You may use my photos, however I ask you credit your source, not just for me but for all the findagrave volunteers.

RE: Sir Robert Giffin
You found me out! - I have a lot of graves on FindAGrave and there are a whole bunch of people who send edits each day - Generally I try to send a thank you to them all - I 'ignore' the first edit and go back when I have a few minutes to write a note - This was one of my temporary 'Ignores'.I did accept all the others you so kindly send and have written to your wall and accepted the final one. I love it when other people get involved so please excuse my lack of timeliness in responding. - Jo

Thank You
I've accepted your edits. Now all I have to do is update my database. Have I told you that we chaserd Margaret Bane Smith's husband back into York County, PA? We have a couple more generations behind William... and we've connected most of those Smiths in the Seceder Cemetery in Jefferson.

Recommendation Notice
Hi Terry,

I got a notice from Find a Grave that you had a suggestion for the post I made for Margaret (Bane) Smith in Seceder Cemetery, Jefferson County, OH. I suspect the suggestion was the posting of Margaret's grave marker, because I don't see anything else. If you put up the picture, thank you. It's a good one.

Use of my photos
Hi

Yes you may use my photos; but I do require that you source me as photographer and Find a Grave as their original location.

Thank you so much for being so considerate and asking permission...

RE: J Giffin
Sorry the cemetery said they had no record of a J. Giffin. If you have a first name, or the name he was buried under, I will check again with the cemetery

RE: Rebekah Moore, b Apr 6 1769
Oh, That's too bad, we could have shared info.
Thanks so much for your hard work, none of these very important ancestors would not be known to many of us, if dedicated people like yourself didn't do all the hard work, locating and taking photos of grave sites is not an easy task, but you get hooked on it. I've only done my own family, and that's been a chore, so-again, thanks so much
