The following came from R. Philips in an Email, 3/31/07
Auburn Argus, October 1, 1897

"In connection with a visit of the venerable Joseph White (aged seventy three) of Nebraska with friends in Niles, Moravia and vicinity, our attention has been called to an ancient relic being a part of a frontispiece of a desk upon which is engraved the date, 1705, being one hundred ninety-two years ago. The initials I.W. is upon the piece which is made of oak. The desk formerly belonged to the present Joseph White's great-grandfather and was brought from England in 1836 sixty-one years ago by the family of which Mr. White is a representative. Handed down from generation to generation only a relic of the desk now remains being owned by Mr. and Mrs. John Hall or Moravia, Mrs. Hall being a lineal descendent of the White family.

"A picnic and reunion as complimentary to Joseph White of Nebraska, (of whose visit to Cayuga County we have previously made a note) was held at the home of a nephew, Horace Rosecrans of West Niles, Thursday, Sept 23d, a goodly number of relatives and friends being present. Dinner was served at about two o'clock and following the invoking of the Divine Blessing by Mr. White, Julius S. Royce read a response to a toast also a "congratulatory" composed for the occasion. This reunion occurring upon Mr. White's seventy-third birthday made the occasion doubly interesting. The birthday anniversary of Mr. Rosecran's mother, Mrs. Conrad Rosecrans, who died twenty-one years ago was upon the same day. She was Mr. White's sister. Vocal music was a prominent feature of the occasion. All present seemed thankful for the opportunity of the day and ere the guests left late in the evening, Mr. White offered up an earnest prayer. Surely it seemed as if God's blessing had attended the listeners all the day long."

I've never heard about "the relic" before. John and Christina ("Aunt Chris") didn't have children and Horace was administrator of her estate (John died in 1926 and Christina died in 1935). It could be anywhere.

The initials "I.W." could be an interesting find. I don't have expertise in English genealogy, but Dianne has traced the Whites back to Abraham White and Mary Dawson who where married in 1740. "I.W." would likely be Abraham's father although technically Abraham was Joseph's great-grandfather.
