They come from the Farm Services Administration collection in the Prints and Photos Division of the Library of Congress. Captions and field notes were prepared by Lange and the two research assistants who accompanied her.
The first image was taken from the yard of the house across the street.* The second shows the Whitfield's nine year old daughter, Dorothy Lee, along with two unidentified women. I suspect it was taken the same morning Lange photographed the Whitfields at home. Unfortunately, these two are low-resolution scans from Lange's negatives.
This image, taken the following Sunday, is a high-resolution scan.

In preparing her book, Daring to look: Dorothea Lange's photographs and reports from the field, Anne Whiston Spirn went back to the site and, on July 2, 2006, took this photo:
About it, she writes: 'The country store is much smaller than I had imagined, its porch more shallow. An electric meter is mounted next to a boarded-up window, but it isn’t running. “My great uncle owned that store,” Bess Whitt, born a Hester, told me.'
Here's a panoramic image giving Lange's and Spirn's photos of Tucks.

*When Anne Whiston Spirn went back to the site on July 2, 2006, she noted that this house "across the road from the Gordonton country store belonged to the store’s owner in 1939. When Lange took the photograph of the men sitting on the store's porch, her back was to the house. She did not photograph the house, which Margaret Jarman Hagood (a researcher who accompanied Lange) called 'the old Bain Home Place.'" Up until the early 1930s the Bains had owned a large plantation in Person County by Gordonton. Field notes from Lange's photo shoot in the area say: "Old man Bain (the landowner) had about 1,200 acres and when he died 6 years ago this was divided among 11 children. Each one got about enough for himself and one tenant. Mr. Whitfield's landlord owns about 100 acres and Whitfield is the only tenant."
This is a photo that Sprin took of the Bain house:
