This was the auction sale of my paternal great aunt & uncle, Clarence and Vera (Haley) Stuber.  They sold their property and moved from Ohio to Salamonia in Jay County, Indiana to help take care of Vera's parents, Eli and Cora (Metzner) Haley.  According to my uncle, Paul LeMaster, when Vera and Clarence made the move of nearly 50 miles, they did it with a wagon and a Ford tractor.
