A cousin I just recently made contact with through a genealogy source, sent the following photos of David and Feby Cornett’s home. Someone else now owns the home and has for the past 30 years or so. If you can look past all the “debris” and just look at the main structures and woodwork, you will see what it would have been like at one time. The gentleman who lives here now, apparently gives tours of this old house to the descendants of David “Blue” Cornett and Phebe “Feby” Sutherland. I wish I lived closer because I would definitely take the tour of my 3rd Great Grandparents home!







Original 4×4 boards in the house. 
These are two of the boards in which were used to build the house. 
There are 2 rooms upstairs and 2 rooms downstairs.


This is a photo of the original ceiling inside the home.


Exterior of the house and the front porch.


The stairway from the kitchen maybe?
 It looks pretty steep too but not so narrow as I thought it might be.


Original flooring. Can you imagine what these floors 
would look like if they were sanded and buffed to a shine?
A touch of varnish or polyurethane and they would be brought back to life!


Original fireplace but looks as if it was closed up for some reason.
