      Left to right: Dr. Joseph Alberto McDowell, Major William Wallace McDowell, Dr. John Calhoun McDowell.

      19th Century Gentlemen -- The McDowell brothers were well-dressed gentlemen of the 19th Century. Dr. Joseph Alberto McDowell (left) and Major William Wallace McDowell (center) lived in Asheville, and their brother, Dr. John Calhoun McDowell (right) lived in Morganton. They were sons of Col. James McDowell, who fought in the Revolutionary War. The major organized the "Buncombe Riflemen" and led them into Civil War combat. He married Sarah Lucinda Smith, whose father, James McConnell Smith, built a three-story house in South Asheville about 1840. The McDowells reared nine children and lived in that house for 25 years. It still stands, the oldest brick home in Asheville.
