Due to the passing of my late husband Warren I will offer the following at public auction.  This will be the second and third of a series of 4 or 5 auctions of personal property and real estate..  Mr. and Mrs. White have resided at this location since 1950.  They attended auctions for years and packed their house and several outbuildings full.  Many things still to be discovered.

Both days items will be sold in mixed order.
