John Angel was born on February 5th, 1841 in Beaverdam, Tennessee to James Angel and Elizabeth Ward. John moved with his parents to Marion County, Arkansas in 1852, settling on a farm near Clear Creek. He enlisted in Company B of the 14th Arkansas on July 13th, 1861 at Yellville. He saw action at places like Elkhorn Tavern, Iuka, Corinth, Port Hudson, and Price's 1864 Expedition. John was captured July 9th, 1863 and was paroled four days later. He continued to fight, however. He took the oath of allegiance in South West Missouri on June 4th, 1865. The war had been hard on his family, losing at least one brother, his father, and his mother. Like most Southrons, he probably lost all he had to the Yankee torch as well. He rebuilt his home and married to Parasidia Clementine Garrett (whose father was killed during the war fighting for the South. I have him in my other album of Confederate Veterans) in 1866 and they had several children. John operated a mercantile business and farmed until 1874, when he bought 300 acres near Bruno to start his new farm. He died there on February 20th, 1901 and was buried in the Bruno Cemetery. We should always remember these brave men and the ideals they fought for.
