Caswell County Mills

Caswell County Mills: Major Thomas Donoho (1822)

Not all the Caswell County water-powered mills have been documented. Here is a reference to a fairly early one found in an 1822 bridge construction document:

"The condition of the above obligation such that Bennett Hubbard and Freeman Hubbard hath this day agreed to build a bridge across Country Line Creek below Major Thomas Donoho's Mill to be completed by the second Monday in July and to be kep in good repair for the term of seven years . . . ."

Major Thomas Donoho probably is that Thomas Donoho (1751-1825) who married Kesiah Saunders (1755-1842) in 1774 and fought in the Revolutionary War.
