Advance-Rumely steam traction engine

We have bought an Advance-Rumely steam traction engine. I am trying to learn the history of the engine. Because we live in the Netherlands, no one here knows anything about this engine. Perhaps someone in the U.S. will recognize the engine.

The engine sold for $19,000 on a Hilpipre auction in 2011 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. It came from the Blount farm, and was sold to Belgium. It has a 9x11 cylinder. The gearing and bearings are in very good condition. The serial number tag that should be on the smoke box is missing. I am doing a cosmetic restoration. The grates and water tanks are not very old, I think. The safety valve is very big. The firebox, flues and front flue sheet are also in very good condition. Production of this model began in 1915.

I would be very grateful to learn any information about this engine.
