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)

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

RE: Giffen tombstone
My pleasure, Terry. Actually, it appears that you photographed the tombstone for their father in 2008 and the children's initials were on the opposite face of the stone from Robert's inscription. So you in fact found their stone, you just didn't look on the other side of the stone.

I added a photo to this memorial to fulfill your request but deleted it after I realized this memorial is actually a duplicate to #44022008 which is actually your memorial that already has a photo on it. I did, however, add a close-up shot of the inscription.

McKinney Cemetery
I noticed there is only 6 interments listed in cemetery 2 of which are unmarked graves. Are these the only burials located there? Trying to determine relationship of my 3rd great grandfather Lenard/Leonard Lawhead (b abt 1814) to the McKinneys. It is said he rode horseback as a boy w/ McKinneys from Belmont county to Springcreek Ohio. He returned w/ his wife Suzanah H Lawhead somewhere near Belmont County to Wayne Township where my 2nd great grandmother is said to have been born in 1834 (Elizabeth Catherine Lawhead.)He was back in Springcreek in the 1840 census where he later died abt 1883. Perhaps you know some history regarding Lawheads/Lougheads of Belmont County?
