Stanley Amore, Plainfield, Dies this Morning
Stanley Amore, aged 60 of Plainfield died suddenly this morning at 7:30 o'clock from Bright's disease. He had been in the restaurant business in Plainfield for many years. He had contracted for a concession booth at the fair and he and another man from Plainfield were loading up this morning to come to the fair when he was stricken. Mr. Amore was never married. There are surviving his father, George Amore, with whom he resided, and three brothers, Charles, of the late home, Grover, Newcomerstown, and Jesse, of Zanesville. Two sisters, Mrs. Jay Woodward of Columbus, and another whose name could not be learned, also survive. He was a member of the M.P. church at Plainfield. Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the M.P. church in Plainfield in charge of Rev. Yoho, and burial will be made in Plainfield.

The age reported in the obituary is more than likely a misprint. IF he was 60 years old when he died, he would have been born in 1869 - 9 years prior to his parents' marriage and when his father was 15 years old. According to his Certificate of Death, Stanley was 49 years old when he died.

Plainfield Boys are There With The Wheelbarrow
Grover Amore and Merle Lawrence of Plainfield, and Leonard Alexander, who lives three miles out of Plainfield met in the restaurant at Plainfield Sunday and an argument resulted as to whether Amore and Lawrence could convey Alexander in a wheelbarrow to his home. Amore and Lawrence it is said, agreed to make the three mile trip for $1.50 and Alexander consented to be the first passenger of a newly organized transportation company operating a wheelbarrow between Plainfield and Possom Hollow, Alexander's home.
All aboard! Alexander boarded and with all the luxury and conveniences of a modern wheelbarrow started on his homeward journey while Amore and Lawrence, amid the cheers and jeers of fellow townsmen, with pluck, determination and the distinction of being originators, operators and barreleurs, took up the handles and undertook a momementous task.
Just 58 minutes after the start Alexander was landed at his destination. Amore and Lawrence collected their fee of $1.50. They claim they earned it.
