CUMMING, Ga. – Four Seasons Auction Gallery will pop open the new year by selling the living estate of Dr. and Mrs. William D. Stone on Jan. 3 beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern. LiveAuctioneers will provide Internet live bidding.

Dr. Stone was the president of the Atlanta Civil War Round Table from 1987-1988 and a member since 1949, noted Steve White of Four Seasons.
