Alexander Polk Donaghho (Alexander Polk Donaghho)

Alexander Polk Donaghho

Alexander Polk Donaghho was a successful potter in Fredricktown, PA, for about 15 years, starting in 1855. By 1870, A.P. Donaghho moved to Parkersburg, WV, where he started the A.P. Donaghho Pottery Company. His company was on 14 acres near Bull Creek, which was known as “Pottery Junction” by the locals. Products produced by him usually had “A.P. Donaghho” or “Excelsior Pottery” on them. Pottery production continued (after his death in 1899) until 1903 or 1904, when it went out of business. Then, in 1906, family heirs sold the land on which the company had stood.  Family links:  Children:  Walter Donaghho (1859 – 1930)* *Calculated relationship
