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.

Belmont Co. site ~

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: Your nice photo
Terry, I'm confused. Your memorial (35384193) was created first. That's why I put the photo there. Thanks for your attention.
Lord's Blessing, Roxie

RE: David Parshall
David was born in 1777 in either Southold or Patchogue, Suffolk County, NY.
I do not know about his children.
Would like additional information about his parents and siblings. I have family history back to Lion Gardiner 1599-1663.
Parents Elias Parshall #57654997 and Anna Wells Parshall #67859649.
Both parents go back to Lion Gardiner.

RE: Calvin Giffin
You're very welcome! I found Luther Griffin and a Lawrence/Lawerence Griffin in another section of the cemetery. I got photos/made memorials for them if they are connected to you as well. Luther and Lawrence were in the same section (section 25) but buried several yards apart. Luther's wife does not appear to be buried in this cemetery.

RE: Meander Mott
Thank you for the transfer ... I will add biographical information, and I think I know someone who has a photo.

RE: Mark Albert
Gravestone says Marx instead of Mark, with a different date of birth, but matching birth year & death date as listed. I hope this is the correct person!

RE: Peregog, the name appears to actually be Peregoy instead. Apologies if either of these headstones are not the people for which you requested photos!

RE: William Outland.
Hi Terry,

Sorry about that. I was uploading as many as I could as quickly as I could from the library. It looks like you got it turned right side up. Glad I could help.

RE: Thanks

What is "D2"? What is its intended use and where can it be purchased? Cost?
