  • Notes 
    • Isabella Glenn Garland (1832-1886)

      The earliest objects firmly attributed to Thomas Day are a pair of dining tables and a matching center table made for physicians and planter John Garland circa 1835. They date from about a decade after Day's arrival in Milton and are a close copy of a classical design popularized by Anthony G. Quervelle (1789-1856), a French emigre cabinetmaker who gained renown in Philadelphia during the 1820s and 1830s.

      W. A. Robertson et al., "Thomas Day and His Family," Negro History Bulletin 13 (March 1950): 124, credits Day as the maker of this early furniture. The date Day made them was deduced through research done on the Garland family history and their connections to Philadelphia. Garland was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania medical school and sent his [a] daughter to school in Philadelphia. The North Carolina Museum of History acquired the banquet tables from John J. and Mary Bell Smith of Washington, N.C., who had purchased them from the "Donoho Sisters." According to the family history of the Donohos, their home, "Longwood," was sold and its contents auctioned in 1954 following the deaths of Grace Donoho Tucker and Ellen Smith Donoho, the last surviving children of Thomas A. and Isabella Glenn Garland Donoho; see Jeannine D. Whitlow, ed., The Heritage of Caswell County, North Carolina, 1985 (Winston-Salem: Caswell County Historical Association, 1985), 182. Isabella, the daughter of John and Christina Garland, had inherited her parents' home and its contents in 1880, following the death of her mother, who had in turn been the sole beneficiary of husband John's estate in 1874.

      Oddly, the 1860 US Census (Milton, Caswell County, North Carolina) entry for the T. A. Donoho household shows a J. B. Donoho (27) in the position usually reserved for the wife. The children listed are: M. L. Donoho (5), which most likely is Mary Lowry Donoho, who was born 1855; and K. M. Donoho (2), which most likely is Kate M. Donoho, who was born 1858.
