More Church Records:
Angel went to Ohio.
family of Angels lived on what was later the Kimble place, on the
Sect. 43. In studying these records, one might place Jenekes Angel as
pioneer father, who died in Hopewell. Caroline may have been his wife
their son. Mrs. Mary Angel may have been Jason's wife. Hannah and
have been man and wife but this is all guess work. Anyway the
family all went
to church and moved on to Ohio around 1838.

settlers in Hopewell. According to Mrs. Fred
Benham, the druggist's wife in
