Believed to have been the Alexander McPherson house, Robeson County, NC; photograph taken c.1885.
My grandmother, Ella McKay Pellegrini, thought this was the McPherson house, but she wasn't sure. It stood on the Old Maxton Road leading south from Red Springs. From left to right: William David Torrey McKay (later Judge McKay of Cleburne, Texas); Randal Franklin Currie and husband of Ella McKay; Mary Eliza McPherson Brown, wife of Malcolm Brown and daughter to Alexander and Nancy Dallas McPherson; unknown elderly woman; Ella McKay Currie, daughter of Duncan McKay and Harriett McNeill McKay; Duncan McMillan "Dunc" McKay, son of Duncan McKay and Harriett McNeill McKay; Gilbert Gilchrist McPherson.
