Biographical / Historical

Mrs. S.F. Tomlinson, full name Angeline Josephine Lawrence Tomlinson, was born in Massachusetts on July 8, 1842, and resided in Raleigh where her husband Samuel Finley Tomlinson (1840-1920) was the superintendent of the Deaf and Dumb Institution prior to their move to Durham in 1871. She was a member of the lady board of managers of Watts Hospital and Durham's public library. She died on March 4, 1905. The Tomlinsons resided at 512 Morehead, in the Morehead Hill neighborhood, and their home was built between 1885 and 1910 and demolished between 1960 and 1978. Major Tomlinson was one of the owners of the R.F. Morris Tobacco Company in Durham. The son-in-law of Mrs. S. F. Tomlinson, Gilbert C. White, resided in his in-laws' home around 1907 to 1908 when he consulted on problems with Durham's sewer system, designed a new water system, worked as a city engineer and consulted as a civil engineer around 1923.
