William Amore
Democratic Standard (Coshocton, Ohio); Friday morning, Feb. 14, 1896; Vol. XVII, No. 48 (front page)
His Life's Journey Ended
Mr. William Amore, aged sixty-eight years; a respected and widely known resident of Franklin township, departed this life last Sunday, his death resulting from an attack of pneumonia. Funeral services were held at the Franklin M.P. church, on Tuesday. Revs. Jones and Wells officiating. Burial was made at Mt. Zion cemetery.


Elizabeth (Spencer) Amore
Coshocton Tribune; Coshocton, Ohio; Sunday morning; September 27, 1914; page 3
Mrs. Elizabeth Amore
Elizabeth Spencer, daughter of Joseph and Jane Spencer, was born near Adamsville, O., October 23, 1836. She was the eldest of family of ten children. She became a member of the Baptist church in girlhood.
January 15, she was married to William Amore. She became the step-mother to two children and the mother of seven, of whom the two step-sons, Henry and George Amore, one son, Cephas Amore, and three daughters, Mrs. Albert Spragg, Mrs. J.T. Reese and Mrs. W.D. Brannon are still living.
After her marriage she joined the Methodist church with her husband. Later she joined the Alexandria Baptist church, of which she remained a faithful member until she was called to join the church triumphant.
Her husband was called to his final reward, February 9, 1896. A few weeks before this, her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Cephas Amore, was called to leave the earthly home of her husband and two small children, one of them only a few weeks old. Until these children were brought up almost to manhood and womanhood, she and her son lived in the same home and she cared for these as for her own. During the latter part of her life she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. J. T. Reese, who lovingly cared for her during her last illness.
Of her father's family there remained two sisters and two brothers: Mrs. C.G. Mears, Mrs. Martha Saffle, Edward and Bunyan Spencer.
Her last illness was lingering and painful; but death came to her relief September 22, 1914.
At first thought, her life seemed that of a common-place good and faithful daughter, sister, wife, step-mother, mother, and grandmother. But a second thought discovers that hers was not an ordinary life. To be the oldest daughter in a family of ten children, to be a loving and faithful step-mother to one family and a devoted mother to another at the same time, and when those were all grown to bring up two grand-children like a mother, was doing something more than being just a common-place woman.

He was last seen on Saturday Jan. 8, when he went to Nabb to get his mail. When found he was dressed and lying on the kitchen floor beside the stove.
