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.|
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)

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

Terry, I'll be in Ohio a few times this summer and I'm hoping to get back to the Rock Hill Baptist Church cemetery in Belmont County... I told you I would re-photograph (with flags) the various veterans - Henry V. Glass, Washington Glass, Aaron Glass, Bailey Jones, and a few others. I'll be re-photographing other direct and indirect ancestors' gravestones too. And I'm going to recheck what the whole cemetery looks like, I think there are several erroneous "cemetery photos" on Find a Grave... If I manage to get there, any other gravestones in particular you'd like me to try to find? Pete
|Sandy Morrey||RE: GoClub Belmont Co.|
Yes. Just now checking it out. Thx. Sandy
|Sandy Morrey||RE: James Watt|
Thank you. I am checking out your website for Belmont Co. Actually, there are a LOT of Morreys who were born in Belmont Co., so I might find something of interest there. Thanks. Sandy
Thank you so much for getting these photos.

Thank you for your efforts in seeking a tombstone.
Period that he died I would have been surprised if you would have found one. I descend through his brother John Dunfee. My line migrated to Lawrence County Ohio.

You are welcome. I've passed over it many times before it was finally seen.

Thanks for the heads up on the father's name. I've looked at the D.C. and can see how it was incorrectly transcribed.
I've corrected the cemetery listing you suggested. Thanks so much for searching for and finding this couple. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated.
