Move to town

Amos Arnold, whose public sale was held at his home two miles north of here, will soon be enrolled on the list of Roberts citizens. Mr. Arnold is numbered amongst our pioneer settlers and is a prominent and prosperous farmer. He recently decided to enter upon a retired life, and to the futherance of this end has had a handsome new residence erected on the east side of town, which he will occupy in the near future.

--Paxton Record  27 January 1898

Note:  New construction on the east side of town.  What home is this in Roberts? Is this Seward's home in Roberts?  
This also states Amos Arnold's home was two miles north of here.  So maybe Amos and Lora resided at the Stam home as we recall.
