Our patriarch in Giltner, Nebr., is John Detamore 1829-1910, the grandson of Johan Jacob Detamore 1787-1849. John's parents were William Detamore 1807-1887 and Margaret Shull 1807-1863. John and Nancy had 7 children, and all except Amy who was born and remained in Ohio, came to Giltner in early 1880s to homestead. They built soddies. All children except Amy are represented in the area of Hamilton and Hall County. We meet at 10 a.m. in Old Opera House on Main Street's north end. It's a town of 300 or so. You won't have a hard time finding it. We have a potluck at noon and visit and take pictures and compare notes until about 4. We meet annually on 2nd Saturday of June. Make plans now to come to Nebraska. Nearest town with motels is Aurora, Nebr. e-mail me to be on the mailing list. I publish The Detamore Star paper highlighting one ancestor each year, plus newletter.
