Continue on Jack McKinney Road. In the little town of Harris, NC do not cross the railroad. Jack McKinney Road veers to the right and runs parallel to the railroad for a distance.

House will be on left hand side of road. The house is as shown in the photos 3 and 4 below. These photos were made coming from the other direction on Jack McKinney Road. It has been at least 10 years since we were there. The most distinctive feature was the “Century Farm” sign in the yard. The graves are under the tree shown on the left side of the house. When we were there, there was an intersection near the house with the Bedford Trail Road and the Jack McKinney Road. However, this name is not shown on current maps. We believe it to be what is now Jenkins Road but we are not sure. The last photo, no. 5, is our best guess of where the house is but it is just a guess.
