True Republican, 3 September 1887

Lorenzo Whittemore, an old and respected citizen of Sycamore, died at the home of his son, Capt. H. C. Whittemore, on last Wednesday evening, of cancer.

He was born March 11, 1807, in Leicester, Mass. He was married to Hannah Kelsey, and in 1848 they with their two sons removed from Auburn N. Y., to Sycamore, where he has ever since resided.

His wife died in March, 1879. Thus another old settler, so closely identified with the history and growth of our community, has passed away.

The funeral services were held on yesterday afternoon, and the remains were interred in Elmwood cemetery.
