Indeed I was surprised to rec. a letter from you - happily surprised.
I shall reply at once. Inasmuch as you are no doubt anxious to get
this "Tree" growing. In the first place you wrote the wrong guy, I
think. Clarence Amore, 8130 Broadview Rd., Broadview Heights, Cleveland
14, Ohio, started a family tree a few years ago and had it at the Amore
reunion. It was in shape or form like a regular tree. Rollo just informed
me over the phone that he doubts whether he got it completed for the
simple reason that when he came to Roy's family he had so much trouble
getting data, that he just quit. So you would do well to write him;
and if he hasn't Roy's bunch finished, then you write to his daughter
Mrs. Ann Moore (husband is Geo.). Roy lives with them. Ann is quite
literate and Roy is living a clean, Christian life now. So between
them they may get their relationship, which is the major portion of
the tree, worked out correctly. I can give some of what you asked for,
but not too much. I do know that mother was of German extraction
(her grandfather had a difficult time with the English language). It
was originally Wirtz, but they Americanized it to Werts. (This is
only parathentically and for your own information: She lost her father
when about three, and Isaiah (Zade) Powelson reared her. Her mother
later married John Simon). I failed to state that grandfather's name
was William and g.mother's was Louisa. My mother's name was Mary
Angelina. I see also that I omitted the address of Geo. Moore. It is
335 N. 9th St., Coshocton. The Amores are of French decent. They
came from the French section of Alsace-Lorraine. The woods is still
full of Amores over there. Grandad, William Amore married Charlotte
Reed who died when my dad was 9. He later married Elizabeth Spencer.
Dad Wm. Henry and George were by the first union and Cephas, Laura,
and Nellie by the second one. Mrs. Earl Rusk, Alexandria can give
you the dope on the second marriage. Uncle George married Katie Burden
and they had Stanley, Bertha, Grover, Jesse, and Georgia. The latter
two are still living but Jesse's mind is bad and I don't know where
Georgia is. I can't go any farther out on a limb there simply because
I don't know. Jess had a stroke and is too hard to understand to be any
incentive to trying to find out any more. I am sure that Clarence has
all this. Was surprised when Norman told us that you were with Marie.
Hope you do not get laid off from your sales job; that is unless you
want to come back to Ohio. You must cater to the wealthy class,
judging from the price of hats. Rose saw Norman's wife, Iva Mae, in
the beauty shop yesterday. She couldn't get their car started and
had to walk. They are well. Her son was married recently in bridgeport
and they attended the wedding. I have a wedding coming up soon. The
bride-to-be is in the hospital for surgery - not serious - and Rose
and I are going to hospital to see her and several others who are
patients whom we know. There is more than a foot of snow here and it
was 16 below zero Wed. night and hovered close to zero the last 24
hrs. Not quite as cold last night, but away below zero. Bert and
Fannie can be glad they are in Fla. Ruth Irwin, their daughter and
her son Julian who is a high schooler, are keeping the home fires
burning for them while they are away. They were staying with Berts
any way. I am doing a lot of rambling but I just remembered to inform
you, in case Clarence doesn't have it correct, that Fannie's maiden
name was Moder. Huffs reared her. Her folks were killed by lightening
when she was small. She was nearly killed. Roy's Mamie's name was Modest
and Rivers reared her. Rollo and Bell are just about as usual. She
has her bad times but is good, for her, right now. I saw her a couple
of days ago. She was out of bed most of the day Wed. Has a phone by
her bed and we can talk to her any time we wish. Rollo has been wanting
to have surgery . . ., but he is confined right now
to the home as chief nurse and housekeeper. Rose and I are able to
eat three squares and are as busy as two misquitos in a nudist camp.
I still do supply work for the various denominations. Have a pulpit
to supply soon now. They had a birthday party and wedding anniversary
on us at the EUB Church in the Fall - a two in one; cake, presents
and everything. They also had a big surprise on me. A "This is your
life," at the church. They had worked on it for many months and
Rose knew it, but kept it a secret. I said "Don't tell me that a
woman can't keep a secret." I am using the typewriter, contrary to
propriety, simply because I thought you might have difficulty
deciphering my script. I am getting pretty shaky. I may have made
several errors because I am hurrying. Won't have time to read it
over but hope you can unscramble it. We cleaned house this morning
and Rose just called me for lunch so we can get dressed for our
hospital call. So will have bring this rambling to a close. As they
say in legal terms cease and desist. Ha ha. Oiled the old jalopy
recently and that is what caused the paper-guide to streak the
margin. Shall clean it off before trying to use it again. Just say
that is my trade mark. Rose joins me in love and best wishes to you
and . . . and . . .. Say hello to . . . and the rest when you write
them again. Uncle 'Zade'

Former Coshocton Man Holds Special Services at Carey
The revival meetings conducted by Rev. I.H. Amore, formerly of Coshocton, pastor of the United Evangelical church, of Carey, Ohio, have been conducted with much interest and success recently. The Rev. Mr. Amore entered into the ministry several years ago at Carey.
The Amore brothers' quartet including Lloyd and Bert Amore, of Coshocton, Rollo Amore, of Zanesville, and Clarence Amore of Columbus, furnished the music for several of the services.
November 21, 1976; Vol. 67, No. 85 (Front Page)
Amore's Epistle Will Be Intered
Two notable letters in addition to the one sent by President Gerald R. Ford, are being added to Coshocton's Bicentennial time capsule. The Rev. Isaiah H. Amore who celebrated his 100th birthday on September 21, 1976, has a message for those in the future. Rev. Amore, a native of Coshocton County, served both city and county churches before his retirement just a few years ago.
In his letter he states that Coshocton has been good to him and has taught him how much people need one another. Rev. Amore strikes a humorous note in his letter, as he often did in the sermons that made his ministry so successful, when he concludes with "I have had my share of weddings and funerals."
Because of his health, Rev. Amore will not be present for the ceremony today at 3 p.m. but will have his letter placed in the capsule by a member of the Bicentennial Commission.
