What is known as the William Mead homestead, on Old Church Road, was sold at auction last Saturday under order of court for a partition sale, by Auctioneer N. A. Knapp. The homestead consists of the residence and some twenty-eight acres of land, 24 on one side of the street and 4 directly opposite.
There were twelve undivided interest in the estate, about two-thirds of which were purchased some time ago by John W. Masury and Laurence Timmons, on a basis of $40,000.
Several interests they were unable to purchase, and these were joined with George L. Slawson to make up a syndicate to purchase, Mr. Slawson bidding the property in at $47,000.
What the syndicate will do with the property is not disclosed, but presumably it will be disposed of either as a whole or in parcels.
