Obituary from Hamilton County Register, 25 March 1910:
John Detamore was born April 19, 1829, in Pennsylvania and passed away Monday evening, March 14th, 1910, at the home of his son Oscar at the age of 80 years, 10 months and 23 days.
He was married to Nancy Huffman on March 20, 1851, and came to Giltner, Nebraska, in 1886, where he resided until his death. He leaves to mourn his loss seven children, all of whom were present in his last hours. His wife passed away a number of years ago, since which time he has resided with his son. Services were held at the home Wednesday Afternoon at 2 o'clock, and interment was made in Lerton Cemetery beside his wife.
Mr. Detamore was an old and respected citizen, and his neighbors and friends all will sadly miss him. The services at the home were conducted by the Rev. Emanuel of Aurora, and by the A.F. & A. M. at the grave.
His family moved from Butler County, Ohio, to Champaign County, Illinois, in September 1857. Daughter Amy stayed in Ohio with her family. From there, they moved to Giltner, Hamilton County, Nebraska, in 1886. John organized the Masonic Lodge at Giltner, and was granted a charter July 21, 1894. He was also an officer. He was a retired farmer and his son Oscar lived on the farm. His other children are Amy Huffman, Albert, Andrew, Hannah Carter, Isaac, and Ardella Brumley.
Card of Thanks: The Detamore family takes this method of thanking their many friends and neighbors, also the Masonic order, for the many acts of kindness performed in their bereavement and for the many beautiful floral offerings at the burial of their father.
