W. R. Linville Buys Torrey Farm, 1912

Property news from the November 7, 1912 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Buys Another Farm.

W. R. Linville & Sons added another quarter section of real estate to their large possessions last week by purchasing the L. N. Torrey farm one mile east of Skidmore. Nodaway county dirt, especially Monroe township land, even though it is considered high in price, looks good to them and they have backed up their faith in future prices by the purchase of this farm. This makes 1330 acres owned by Mr. Linville and his two sons around Skidmore, the farthest lying not over three miles from town. The deed for this farm was made to Aaron and W. S. Linville.

Mr. Torrey is already a citizen of Skidmore, where he will still reside, and will now retire from farming.
