Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Website: www.belmontcountyohio.net

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)

Griffith - MD to Pickaway Co, OH
Hoping you might know something to connect this great-great-grandmother of mine. I know little and hoping to know more about the GRIFFITH connection who began in MD, county unknown. Hoping to find out the name of Eliza's parents and/or siblings. I have searched through all of the cemeteries in Pickaway, Perry and Muskingum counties hoping to find a Griffith connection, but have not found anything to connect. Perhaps you know of Griffith connections that might be related.

RE: Thanks
Hi, Terry! It would be wonderful to have you transfer me all the graves associated with the Paine Cemetery were Jonathan and his father William are buried. They are all family members and I have relationships who are cousins of mine that I keep in touch with. Lynn Welniak, redwood12114 @gmail.com.

RE: Giffin history
I no longer have the bible as it went to an unknown relative somewhere in Missouri---I just wrote it word for word 40 years ago when my grandmother Myra was still alive---for some reason she gave it to some other family member which told her that they just wanted to borrow it and return it soon (which they never did)

RE: Giffin History
Don't know too much about my great grandfather`s history (Charles Giffin)1860-1941 besides him being Irish and from Ohio. From my Grandmother`s Giffin family bible (Myra Giffin Morrow), had a small note written in it---Jerald or Gerald Giffin immigrated from Ireland date unknown. He settled in Columbia, on the Ohio River in the spring of 1714. His brother was killed by Indians near Columbia on Nov. 27, 1794. Charles Giffin`s mother (maiden name Ward, was from Holland. Charles wife was Gertrude E. Giffin 1867-1954 ( This is the only history written in the Bible )
