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: 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?

Olive Berneau request
if you can call Crown Hill Trumbull County Oh and get section and plot # I will try to get your photo. The cemetery wants to charge me $5.00 per name for that info since I'm not related.

I will be visiting Woodlawn Cemetery and will attempt to get a photo for you if you can provide plot information: ie, section, lot and if there is a memorial.

Belmont site
Thanks for getting back to me Terry. I am surprised and very disappointed as I imagine many many others are. You and so many worked very hard to keep that site going. It was so helpful and everyone worked together to assist and share info. Why would it be closed? I tried to log in with my former name and password with no success. oh well, I'm sure lots of people are sad. Your efforts were greatly appreciated!

Giffens in Mission Park South
I found the marker for Ernest Charles Schoellhorn and the inscription says " First grandchild of William and Edith Giffen". I made a memorial for him (#131257677). If he is family of yours please let me know so that I may transfer his memorial to your care. Thank you. L V

Henry Clay Van Scyoc
Hello, while I was looking around on find a grave today I saw we had duplicate memorials for Henry Clay Van Scyoc in Southern Cemetery Barnesville Ohio, I added mine on May 2nd and you added yours on the 10th or 11th of May. I am related to Henry Clay Van Scyoc, he is the brother of my 3rd great grandfather, so is there anyway we can work this out, mine already has the headstone photo and we have the same info on the memorials already so is their any way we can work this out or not to be mean or rude, can you delete yours since he is my relative? Thanks :) Oh, also the memorial # for my Henry Clay Van Scyoc is Find a Grave memorial #129043267. Thanks again.
