James Adams Giffen
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 27, 1850
Monroe County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 17, 1932
Licking County
Ohio, USA

Wife: Jane (Cooke) Giffen, d/o John Cooke and Eliza Johnson.

His father should be in Pleasant Hill Cem., York Twp., Belmont Co., but I haven't found his tombstone. After his father died, mom moved to Delaware Co., OH.

His grandparents were Wm. Giffen and Isabelle Reid. They came to Philedelphia, from Scotland on the 5 Sep, 1820. In 1821, they moved to Bellaire, Belmont Co., OH and then York Twp., Belmont Co.

The Church mentioned in his obit may have been Pleasant Hill, in Belmont Co., where his wife and his parents were from, not Pleasantville.

James and Jane (Cooke) Giffen had nine children; Sarah, Lawrence Cooke, Otto Adams, Wilma Louella, Clara Lorenia, Jennie Alice, Sadie Letitia, Anna Elizabeth, and James William Giffen.
