Letter written by 'Zade' Amore to Gertrude Amore Shackelford on January 25, 1963
532 S. Seventh St., Coshocton, O.
Jan. 25, 1963
Dear Gertrude,
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 paranthetically 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 We. Has a phone by her bed and we can talk to her any time we wish. Rollo has been wanting to have surgery for porstate trouble, 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 t use it again. Just say that is my trade mark. Rose joins me in love and best wishes to you and Marie and Joan. Say hello to June and the rest when you write them again. Uncle 'Zade'

245 Ted enlisted in the Army in 1943 and returned from the European Theater in 1946. He served in England and Germany as a supply sergeant (Staff Sgt.) in the Quartermaster Corp. He had poor eyesight and had memorized the chart so he could join the service. His best eye was the left, so when firing his weapon ( if he didn't have his helmet pulled down just right) the casing would hit him in the forehead! He was offered a field commission if he would serve in Germany after the war in the rebuilding effort. He didn't feel that it would be a proper place to bring his wife and daughter, so he turned it down. On the ship ride home, he slipped and broke his leg and to add insult to injury got salt water inside the cast! The itching got so bad that he cut the cast off with his penknife. Theodore William Amore

Left Asleep, Two Perish in Flames Housekeeper Calling at Neighboring Residence Thurman Lee Amore, 4, and Wesley Leonard Amore, 2, sons of Thurman L.

Left for less than a half hour, peacefully sleeping in their bed, by Wilma Stanley, housekeeper for Mr. Amore, the children were charred bits of flesh and bone when the fire had cooled sufficiently for rescuers to gain entrance. The children's mother, Mrs. Mary Amore, died in Canton about a year ago. The shack which was near a mine on the Clark farm, where Mr. Amore works, was covered with sheet steel on the sides and when Mrs. Stanley returned from a brief talk with Mrs. Clark, the interior of the place was a blazing furnace, so hot that the steel on the sides was red white. It was impossible to enter for nearly an hour after the fire had burned out. Coroner W.F. Lyons had been called from Coshocton in the meantime, and viewed the bodies of the children as they lay in the ashes of what once had been their bed. There was nothing left inside the shack, a one-room dwelling, except ashes and the charred bodies of the children. Mrs. Stanley said that at about 4 p.m. Thursday she put the children to bed, watched them go to sleep, and then went to the Clark residence, on the same farm but some distance from the shack near the mine mouth. Mr. Amore was away from home all day Friday, returning 10 minutes after the fire was discovered. Before leaving she fixed the fire in the stove, Mrs. Stanley said. Less than a half hour later she returned to find the shack a roaring furnace of flame, with the fire shooting thru the roof. Mrs. Stanley ran back to the Clark home and summoned aid. Firemen and officers from West Lafayette hurried to the scene of the fire but the shack still was so hot that they were forced to wait for nearly an hour before an entrance could be effected.
