I believe the information for Julia Willson http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Willson-848 is correct.  She married John Angle http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Angle-94 per marriage cert https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FZLT-3QT that shows her father.  Various census records that have been found are contradictory as is FTM.  Any assistance is appreciated!

I have numerous John Angles in my family.  In fact, in an effort to find my John Angle (Johann Wendel Engel / Angle) who arrived in the 1760's in Pennsylvania, I have done a one name study of as many John Angle's / Angel / Angell / Engel / Engle, etc. as I could find living in Pennsylvania, MD, VA, NC, TN, KY, Ill, and MO.  Since most German men were Johann's at this time and many or maybe most took John in the colonies, it is a very difficult name to properly identify in the context of a specific family.

Funny question.  My earliest Angle ancestor is John Wendel Engel/Angle who came to America in the mid 1760's from Germany.  His records have been very difficult to distinguish one John (Johan) Angle from another.  I have 75 of them in my family tree of various ages.  I have an informal one name study of sorts.  

I found the major Angle groups are in Pennsylvania (there are several that are not related), New Jersey and Virginia in the 1700's to early 1800's.  Several of these Angles headed west into Kentucky and Tennessee and mine ended up in St. Louis, MO by 1800.

DNA helps, but the records are still difficult to find.  Several of the Germany to PA to MO line have taken DNA tests (ancestry.com) and that alone confirm the connection.  The ancestry was taken after the YDNA test the connected 3 families.  I continue to find and add Angle families to my ancestry.com tree hoping to find the remaining 5 of 10 children of my John Wendal Angle.  Each child has been very challenging to identify.  I believe we only found one or two baptismal records in Ste Genevieve, MO in the late 1700's.

A sure sign of some connection is when you continually run into the same researcher over an extended period of time.  This has happened to me on multiple occassions.  The DNA test sealed it.  After intense study of a probate record and those that purchased inventory of the estate we were able to identify other family members / connections encouraging DNA tests that helped to prove and connect families that had nearly given up on finding the parents.  (i.e. the Aaron Quick family.  also Metz, Shalley, Boyer, etc.)

If you have Angle in your family it would be so appreciated if you built a tree in Ancestry.com and had mulitple family members take DNA test.  We all get different DNA.  You go back several hundred years only some will match families from that time frame.  Each test of a sibling, cousin, parent, aunt or uncle helps immensely and informs your research and the database.  Ancestry.com/DNA

I literally have 81 John Angle's in my Ancestry.com tree, but non are your John W Angle b 1849 in Pennsylvania.

I have been looking for records for my John W(endall) Angle/Engel born in the mid 1750's in Germany and arrived in Pennsylvania in the 1760's.  He apparantly was in Virginia, possibly North Carolina, then Tennesee ending up in Missouri where he died in 1818.  There are many John's in this family and there are lots of John Angle's / Engel's in this country in the 17 and 1800's.  It is a very common nearly indistinguisable name akin to John Smith

Good luck - Laurie Angel
