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, Haines, Hepburn, Hinkle, Keyser, Long, Milligan, Pond, Spears, Shahan, and Terrill.

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 There's my Giffen family which started with Robert and Mary (Bane) Giffen. Plus a family tree for the Andrew Giffin family.

My 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 Scott ~ 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: Worley
Thank you for the information.
I do not have an Ancestry account though I am on it a lot. I edit for Kaye Van Fleet. She has a Worley tree. I spend time looking at many Worleys, but I always come back to Harrison County and Belmont County. My G-g grandfather was David Worley married to Mary Luke of Harrison County. I have never been able to find where David and Mary are buried. My g- grandfather was John Watson Worley married to Mary Belle Virtue. His find a grave site is 116673278.

I do feel that I will someday figure out how I am connected to the Worley's in Belmont County. My grandfather married Mertie Zents from Belmont County and my g- Aunt Mary worked there.

James E Worley
Would you happen to know James' parents? (see below) My name is Kathy Worley Peters and I have talked to your brother Skip before. I am looking into the Belmont Worleys because my Worley roots are in Harrison County and I am realizing that there is a connection of the Harrison County Worley's with the Belmont County Worley's. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Thank You for adding the picture of the tombstone. This since I could not travel to Ohio to find Joseph's tombstone myself.

RE: Milford E Giffin

I was glad to get the photos. I looked for other members of your family. All of the Giffin stones have been photographed and posted in this lot.
I will be glad to look in the museum tomorrow for obits on your family members. We have a really nice museum here that usually has obits if they were published in the paper.

RE: Veria Giffin

I know the Green Castle (old section) has had every marked photographed and posted to Find a Grave.
I went over there last year to try and fill some requests and it was so over grown I was socked, couldn't even walk in it.

I did some checking around and found that the last time it was cleaned up I think in 2012 they went in and photographed all the head stones then went to the Wright State University library to get the cemetery records and made memorials for them on Find a Grave.

Hope this helps you.

Here's the story from last years clean up
