We learned during the tour that the last member of the family, who owned the house, fell on hard times. She rented rooms out for a period of time at the point in time when my wife's grandmother would have been a young women; so, it's possible family lore could be true. We're definitely going to research this more!
Very charming historic house and gardens. Edenton is a delightful historic town.
