About Lawrence Washington Angel

Info. by Courtney Burge, Oct. 2009:

Notes for Lawrence Washington Angel:

Lawrence's age for the 1850 Census was listed as 63 years. He could have been born earlier than 1790.

The childrens names listed and approximate birthdates are from the 1850 Mason County, WV census.

Lawrence probably had another wife before Margaret, based upon the date of their marriage and the

difference in their ages, leaving the possibility open that there were older children.

Lawrence was listed on the Gallia County tax list of 1818, but was not on the 1819 list or the 1820

census report. He was taxed on 2 horses and 1 cow. He was listed in the 1830, 1840 and 1850 Mason

County, WV census.

The death record is not clear on the year of his death. It may have been 1854. The record, filed in the

Mason County Courthouse and reported by his wife, Margaret, stated that he was born in Stokes

County, North Carolina, in 1790, the son of John and Mary Angel and that he was a shoemaker. Other

sources indicate that he may have been born as early as 1783.

He may have purchased 100 acres of land in Mason County, WV on Little Guyandotte Creek from

Lively Cremeans on September 1st, 1847. Mason Co. deed book No. 13, page 385.

Notes for Margaret Simpson Light:

Margaret whereabouts for the 1860 census has not been determined. For the 1870 census for Mason

County, WV she was back in Clendenin Twp, with sons James and Henry.

In 1880, she was in Middleport, OH with a niece, Ruth Jane Angel and Margaret's son James who was

listed as a boarder. Margaret was listed as either sick, bedridden or disabled.
