Working upstream from Charles Angell (1736 - 1776 North Carolina) there appears to be a rather fantastical line of Angells in Rhode Island commencing with a John Angell (1609-1698) for which I can find not a shred of documentation. Of course these people may be found in Ancestry trees.
Can some of the other Rhode Island project members have a look. There seem to be small bits and pieces of real data but they have been sliced, diced, and comingled to the point I can't even sort ou twho the profiles might be.
I noticed that Torrey cites something he simply refers to as Angell. I'm not finding what it might be. Does someone know to what he refers?
I see notes here and there on some of these profiles from various people such as Kay Wilson and Robin Lee asking questions on some of these but I wonder if the entire line is fiction.
