Born in Stokes County (which became Surry County in 1789), North Carolina. He was the eldest of three sons of Mathias & Martha (Messer) Angel (Martha is Mathias' second wife).

Like his father he was a farmer and worked the land for a living.

He married Eliza Jane Monk on 21 Nov 1850 by W.J. Haud, Minister of the Gospel, in Portsmouth, Scioto County, Ohio. They started their family in Ohio before moving on to Wisconsin. Between 1860 and 1872, he and his family lived in Aid Township, Lawrence Co., Ohio, very close to his father and mother, Martha. His mother passed away and the date and location are unknown.

They continued to build their family until at least 1878, but there was one last child that the date cannot be found yet. In 1883 Eliza passed away and she is buried in Bakerville, Wood County, WI.

In 1897 he moved from Wisconsin to the Los Gatos California to live with his daughter and son-in-law, Richard and Sarah Lines, which shows in the 1900 census. By 1910 he was living with another daughter and son-in-law, George Courtland and Wilhelmina "Mina" Hill and their three children, George, Elizabeth, Katharine. He died at their home in July 16, 1912 and was buried on July 17, 1912.

He was survived by his 12 children; Sarah J., John M., Wiley, James H., Daws W., Addie E., Charles W., Wilhelminia, Benjamin F., and Frank Angel. And of course numerous grandchildren.

He is buried in Los Gatos Memorial Park along with his son-in-law, George C Hill and daughter Wilhelmina "Mina" (Angel) Hill, in the same family plot area.
