Andrew Angel was the third proprietor of the Angell Tavern and the proprietor when the Marquis de La Fayette's troops were camped on the property around the tavern and Lafayette and his officers were quartered in the tavern itself. His father Jeremiah Angell (1706 - 1785) was still alive at time and may have still been active in running the tavern.

He was the second cousin of Revolutionary War hero Colonel Israel Angell who was a friend of General George Washington and Comte de Rochambeau who were also said to have stayed at the tavern. Col. Angell was my fifth great grandfather and Andrew Angel was my second cousin. The Angell Tavern was built by my eighth great-granduncle Thomas Angell (1672-1744).

Comte de Rochambeau quartered his troops at the tavern owned by Andrew's cousin Thomas Waterman (1755-1822) on his way to Yorktown.

Taverns weren't just a place to get a drink after work. 250 years ago they were where travelers stopped to get a meal and a place to sleep for the night. They were also where public meetings were held. It is likely that many of the events of the American Revolution were planned in the meeting rooms of taverns such as these.

According to an unidentified source: "grave located in field behind Angell Tavern". This refers to the Andrew Angell lot (Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Scituate #192) The graves in the Andrew Angell Lot were moved to Smithville Cemetery, or the New Rockland Cemetery when the Scituate resevoir was created. Andrew himself is not listed at either Smithville or Rockland, but since his wife and other members of his family were moved to Smithville Cemetery, it is safe to assume that his grave is also located there.
