  • Notes 
    • Source: The Heritage of Caswell County, North Carolina, Jeannine D. Whitlow, Editor (1985) at 181-182 (Article #174 "Donoho"). The birth date of 03 Dec 1831 ascribed by the above source appears incorrect if she was bearing children in 1831/1832.

      Christina Isabella Glenn, educated at Salem Academy, was married to John Tabb Garland, M.D., of Fairview, Milton, North Carolina, and later of Longwood, Caswell County. Dr. Garland purchased Fairview, located on North High Street, from a Mr. Saunders, its builder, in 1822, and Mr. Saunders built Longwood as his new home. Only two years later, however, in 1824, the two men exchanged houses so that Mr. Saunders could entertain William H. Crawford of Georgia, a presidential candidate in '24, in the town house. The Garlands made their home permanently at Longwood.

      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.
