Here is the some info from the bio of GEORGE L. GAMET also from the 1915 History of Harrison Co. Iowa. You can view these biographies and others at the USGenWeb site for Harrison Co., at:

Page 875: George L. GAMET, son of DAVID and NANCY (HUTCHISON) GAMET, was born November 20, 1876, in Morgan township, Harrison Co., Iowa. His parents were natives of Oswego Co., NY, and Ohio, respectively. His father was a son of DAVID M. and HANNAH (HYDE) GAMET, natives of NY, and his mother was a daughter of JAMES and MARTHA HUTCHISON, natives of Ohio. When David Gamet Jr. was a small boy his parents moved to Hancock Co., IL, and in 1846 moved on west and located at Kanesville, the present city of Council Bluffs in Pottawattamie County, Iowa. In 1853 the family located in Harrison Co. and bought a farm near Magnolia. DAVID M. GAMET, SR. was the second recorder and treasurer of Harrison Co., being elected to this joint office in 1854. After serving his time in this capacity, he moved to Little Sioux where early in the summer of 1856, he established his first store. He had a stage station, a hotel and small stock of goods and became the first merchant in this section of the county. DAVID M. GAMET examined the first teacher, A.T. CRANE, who taught in Little Sioux township. In 1856, DAVID GAMET JR. homesteaded 160 acres of land in Morgan Township and later added 160 acres more by purchase. Ten children were born to David and Nancy Gamet, George L. being the youngest.

George L. Gamet married May 2, 1906, to ANNA MORROW, who was born November 19, 1880, in Harrison Co. and is a daughter of HUGH P. and ROSE ANN (FERGUSON) MORROW, natives of Toronto, Canada, and New York respectively. Mr. and Mrs. Gamet have an adopted son, JOSEPH ALOYSIUS, who was born Sept 23, 1913.

I HOPE THIS INFO IS HELPFUL TO YOU. There are probably burial records at the Harrison Co. web site as well.
