Birth: 1782
Orange County

Death: 1829
Campbell County

Nancy Ann (Trammell) Angel was born in Orange Co., North Carolina about 1782. She is thought by most to have been the daughter of Dennis Trammell (1759-1849) and Elizabeth MNU Brassfield (1757-1820).

Nancy's mother, Elizabeth, was born in Orange Co., NC. In almost every Angel family tree she is shown as the daughter of John Brassfield (abt 1832-1778) and Elizabeth Reade (abt 1830-1765) who married in 1755 in Orange Co., NC. However, this may be incorrect.

A very knowledgeable Angel genealogist says that Elizabeth was actually a young widow (abt. 21) when she married Dennis and that Brassfield was not her maiden name, but the last name of her first husband. Despite considerable research on the part of this genealogist, Elizabeth's maiden name currently remains unknown.

Nancy's father, Dennis, was a Revolutionary War soldier. He was born in Amelia Co., Virginia, the son of Thomas Trammell (1710-1807) and Elizabeth Sebastion (1713-1768, also born in Virginia. It is thought that Dennis' great-grandfather, Thomas Trammell (1645-1725), immigrated to Virginia from England in the mid-1660s.

Around 1804, Nancy married Archibald Andrew "Arch" Angel (1775-1847) in Tennessee, probably in Campbell County. He was the son of William Angel II (1752- 1852) and Mary Rachel Godwin (abt 1752-1850).

Nancy and Arch were married for 25 years and had six known children. They were James Henry Angel (1806-1887), Thomas Angel (1814-1851), Milla "Millie" Angel (1816-bef 1880), Dennis Angel (1819-1858), Nancy Ann Angel (1820-aft 1892) and Elizabeth Jane "Eliza" Angel (1822-1891).

Nancy died about 1829 in Campbell Co., TN around the age of 47. Arch died on July 14, 1847 in Scott Co., TN about the age of 72. Both are thought to be buried in what is now called the Angel-Wright Cemetery in Ketchen, Scott Co., TN in graves that are no longer marked or graves that have unreadable field stones markers. Nancy's brother, James Trammell (1774-1826), was buried there three years prior to her death and still has a readable headstone.
