The Dusenbery home at 405 South Main Street, Lexington, NC. Built in 1837 by Henry Rounsaville Dusenbery (1794-1852). The woman sitting by the front door is probably James Dusenbery's sister, Cornelia Dusenbery Smith (1831-1887). The younger woman may be Cornelia's daughter and James's niece, Grace Cornelia Smith (1867-1939), who married John Keen Hankins in 1887.
