PROMINENT RESIDENT AND CIVIL WAR VETERAN IS CALLED
Byron A. Angell passed this life last Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, Jan. 18, 1920, at the
age of 73 years, 2 months, and 29 days. He has been ill for years but his health has been
especially poor the past year. Exposure during the civil war was the beginning of illness from
which he never completely recovered.
Deceased was born on Point Peninsula, Jefferson County, State of New York, on October 19th.
1846. He joined the 37th Wisconsin Volunteers at Gratiot, Wis. and was in the service about
three years. He was at the siege of Petersburg which was one of the hottest conflicts of the
war. After the war, he came to Iowa, and at DeWitt, Iowa on Sept. 12, 1867, was joined in
marriage with Harriett Augusta Piersol. Mrs. Angell passed at Lindsay in the spring of 1907
and is buried in Los Angeles. Her remains will be brought to Lindsay and placed besides those
of her husband.
For many years, Mr. Angell was a resident of Marble Rock, Iowa where he was engaged in
various enterprises among those being farming, feed and fuel, and the lumber business. In the
spring of 1901 he went to Villard, Minn. and was engaged in the lumber business and in banking
until he came to Lindsay in 1906.
To Mr. and Mrs. Angell were born five children: Charles F. of Villard, Minn.; Clara E., deceased
Jan. 3, 1901 at Villard, Minn. She was the wife of W. B. Kiggens and the mother of Clarence;
Mary L. and Lewis who both died in infancy; and Mrs. W. S. Sulser of this place.
Besides his own children and their families he is survived by two sisters, one at Laurens, Iowa; and
one at Philadelphia, Pa.
He had considerable property here consisting of land and orange orchards and had been a stock-
holder in the First National and Savings bank until the first of January.
The funeral service will be conducted at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. S. Sulser, tomorrow
(Saturday) afternoon at two o'clock providing a son, C. F. Angell of Minnesota arrives in time.
Otherwise it will be postponed and notices will be posted. The service will be conducted by
Rev. J. N. Hoover assisted by Rev. R. W. Anderson. A quartette from the Presbyterain church
will furnish music.
The pallbearers were his immediate associates in business affairs and will be: D. O. Bishop;
G. K. Hostetter; H. C. Morrison; E. L. Daniels; T. H. Faus; and G. V. Reed.
Mr. Angell was a good father and friend to everyone. He worked and saved in youth and was always a constructive factor in affairs. Always temperate, sincere, and practical, he lived wisely and consistently. The world is much better because of his life.
Interment will be made at Olive Cemetery.
