Capt. Peter Angevine owned 300 acres at Royalton, Niagra County, N.Y. in 1831.

Allen Angevine moved to Michigan in 1835, living first at Fairfield and Madison before moving to Adrian between 1850-58. The Angevine home was located at 49 South Main Street. Tax rolls and city directories show the numbering changed over the years with the same house being located at number 261, 51, 102, 104, and from 1915 to today at 562 South Main. The frame house there now appears to have been rebuilt around the turn of the 20th century. A.S. Angevine owned a carpentry shop that constructed wooden railway carriages and boxcars. "They did a large business, employing several carpenters. ...and he had several other railroad business interests." The 1859 city directory lists him as employed by the M.S. & N.I. R.R.) "He had an office at the train depot." His sons Warren, Franklin and Allen went to work for the railroad also. His eldest son, Saxton Smith Angevine, went into the newspaper business and was at one time editor of The Grenada (Mississippi) Locomotive.

After his wife's death in 1889, Allen S. Angevine went to St. Louis, where he lived with his son Frank and died at 1719 Gratiot Street. This was 9 blocks from the Gratiot Street Prison and the Brant Mansion, considered the finest home in St. Louis in its day.

The Adrian DAILY TIMES & EXPOSITOR, Feb. 16, 1898, page 3, column 2: "The remains of A.S. Angevine, accompanied by his son, Frank, reached the city this morning from St. Louis, via the Wabash. They were met by a committee of four from the Odd Fellows. Messrs. A. Dobbins, James L. Kirk, Channing Whitney and F.L. Hough. Mr. Angevine was next to D.D. Sinclair, the oldest in membership of the order of Odd Fellows, having been a member for over 50 years. The funeral will be under the auspices of Lodge No. 8, associated with Rev. J.B. Banker, of the First Baptist church. The Odd Fellows will meet at the lodge room at 1:30 Thursday afternoon to attend the funeral."

The Adrian WEEKLY PRESS, Feb. 18, 1898, p.3, column 3:
"A.S. Angevine, one of the most estimable old pioneer residents of Adrian, died last Sunday at the home of his son, in St. Louis, Mo., with whom he had lived for the past eight years. He was one of the oldest in membership of Adrian lodge No. 8, I.O.O.F., of which he was past grand, and for years resided at his home on South Main street. He was a man of genial disposition, the soul of honor, a typical representative of upright manhood in every respect. Death came by reason of age, he being over 87 years old. The remains were brought here for interment. The funeral was under the auspices of Adrian lodge I.O.O.F. Thursday afternoon from the chapel of the M.P. church, Rev. Banker assisting in the services."
