Husband of Maria Harriet Warren.
Son of Capt. Peter Angevine and Sarah (Conklin) Angevine. Grandson of Revolutionary War soldier Joseph Angevine.

He was born in Putnam Valley, Putnam County, New York, at that time called Philipstown then in Dutchess County, near Carmel.
His father Peter Angevine (born 25 July 1779, died 27 Apr 1852) married on March 12, 1803, Sarah Conklin (Conklyn), born Jan. 18, 1779 Dutchess Co., New York; died July 30, 1823 Putnam Co., N.Y.
Peter Angevine married, as his second wife, Esther (Lickley) Purdy on Nov. 25, 1824. She was widow of his cousin Elias A. Purdy, son of Isaac Purdy Jr. and Susannah (Angevine) Purdy who was the daughter of Eli Angevine and Charity (Bonet) Purdy and granddaughter of Pierre Angevine and Marguerite deBonrepos.

Esther (Lickley) Purdy Angevine was born Nov. 9, 1792, and died June 27, 1825. She was a sister William Lickley, father of Phebe (Lickley) Warren, the wife of Sylvanus Warren of Carmel, a 5th-great-grandson of Richard Warren of the "Mayflower." This Sylvanus Warren was an uncle of Angevine Warren, incidentally, and their daughter Emily Warren Roebling (1843-1903), first cousin of Angevine Warren and also Allen Angevine's half-brother Abraham Angevine, was a well known socialite and author of Notes on the Warren Family, "Descendants of Richard Warren of the Mayflower" (1903), as well as editor of The Diary of Rev. Silas Constant (1902). She was most famous for helping her engineer husband complete the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge.

1818 Council of Appointment, Military Records 1784-1821, page 1906: (1818) Dutchess Co., NY 149th Regiment; Light Infantry - Peter Angevine, Captain.
Capt. Peter Angevine owned 300 acres at Royalton, Niagra County, N.Y. in 1831.

Allen S. Angevine moved to Royalton, in Niagara County, New York, with his father in 1831, settling near Sylvanus Warren, a distant cousin of Emily Roebling's father of the same name.
Allen Angevine married at Royalton in 1833 to Maria Harriet Warren and moved to Michigan in the spring of 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, editor and publisher of a newspaper at Grenada, Mississippi.

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."
