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 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)

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

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

RE: FAG memorial 40586665
About my Griffith ancestors;
My father's mother, Roxie P. Griffith, was one of Isaac Nelson Griffith's daughters. His father was William Griffith .. as you said, he is buried in Iowa.
For a while, i could research that line Physically, when we lived on the west side of Columbus, Ohio. It was 45 miles west of my gggrandfather's birthplace in Mount Vernon, Ohio.
Two years ago, we retired (a second time, USAF the first), sold our home of thirty years, arranged my mother's funeral and moved to our present home in Sarasota, Florida.
Thank you for your continued input.
