Birth: Apr. 20, 1825
Poolesville
Montgomery County
Maryland, USA
Death: Mar., 1908
Raleigh
Wake County
North Carolina, USA

Born to prosperous Montgomery County, Maryland farmer Fielder Darnell and Elizabeth (Young) Darnell, Thomas tried several professions before settling down in Cumberland, Maryland as a studio and stereographic photographer. He ran a photography studio for many years on Baltimore Street in Cumberland.

He married Adeline V. Bartruff in Baltimore County, Maryland or Washington, DC about 1848--there are two conflicting marriage records.

According to Hartzler's Marylanders in the Confederacy, Darnell served in Co. B of the 2nd Maryland Cavalry during the Civil War.

Adeline bore him nine children--two of whom, Bertie and William--learned photography from him and later worked at that trade in Raleigh.
