The home of Duncan and Harriett McNeill McKay at Philadelphus, Robeson County, NC; demolished 1996.
In 1865, Henry Berry Lowrie entered this house looking for Frank, the son of Duncan and Harriett McKay. Frank was not home, so HBL sat by Harriett's bedside and rocked her newborn baby, Emma, to sleep. Frank never showed up.
