James Halsey Angell

M, #802, b. 10 May 1822, d. 1 July 1890
ChartsDescendants of Banfield Capron, Jr.
     James Halsey Angell was born on 10 May 1822 in North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.1 He married Sarah Angell Capron, daughter of Edwin Capron and Deborah Angell, on 21 April 1842 in North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, by by Rev. Martin Cheney.2,3,4 James Halsey Angell died on 1 July 1890 at age 68.5 He obituary reads " James Halsey Angell, son of James and Selinda (Ray) Angell, was born at Centerdale, Rhode Island, May 10, 1822. He obtained a good public school education, and began his business life as an accountant in the Allendale mill, also was a clerk in the village store, which he afterwards conducted until 1848, when he sold his business and succeeded his brother Nathaniel as proprietor of the Centerdale Hotel which, at that time, was conducted as an old-time tavern stand. He conducted the hotel successfully until April 1, 1858, when he withdrew and moved to a farm which then belonged to his father, but upon his father's death in 1870 it passed to him. The farm is now included within the limits of the village of Centerdale. In 1854 'Halsey' Angell, as he was familiarly known, was appointed postmaster of Centerdale, an office he held for many years. He took active part in town affairs, held many offices of trust and responsibility, settled many estates, and was much sought for in counsel and as an arbitrator of the disputes or arguments which arose between the villagers. For thirty-three years he recorded the daily doings of the farm and village, not a day being missed. This record ceases only a few months before his death, and in all matters of historical import the diary is accepted as authority. When, in later years, his son prepared the volume herein frequently referred to -- 'Annals of Centerdale' - he found the old diary kept by his father a valuable aid.

Mr. Angell was made a Mason in Temple Lodge, No. 18, of Greenville, September 5, 1868, and in 1876 was one of the organizers of Roger Williams Lodge, No. 32, Free and Accepted Masons, of Centerdale, and when a charter was granted his name was engrossed thereon as a charter member. At the first meeting of Roger Williams Lodge he was elected treasurer, and held that office continuously until his death, fourteen years later. When the time came to pay the last token of respect, his Masonic brethren of Roger Williams Lodge paid him the tribute of the beautiful burial rite of the order.

Public-spirited and interested in all that pertained to the general good of his community, Mr. Angell found a worthy outlet for his activity in many ways, one of his interests being the Union Free Library, which he took an active part in founding, and for fifteen years, until his death, served as its treasurer. He was highly-esteemed wherever known, and in the village where his life of seventy years had been spent he was the most honored. During the hours of this funeral services all places of business in Centerdale were closed, this last mark of respect being gladly rendered by his friends of a lifetime. He was a man of fine appearance and charming personality, a loving husband and father, a good citizen, and a loyal friend.

Mr. Angell married, in 1842, Sarah Angell Capron, born June 23, 1824, died April 27, 1893, daughter of Edwin and Deborah (Angell) Capron. They were the parents of two sons, George F. and Frank C. Angell." He was buried in North Burial Ground, Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.5

Frank Capron Angell

M, #804, b. 9 March 1845, d. 12 December 1928
ChartsDescendants of Banfield Capron, Jr.
     Frank Capron Angell was born on 9 March 1845 in Allendale, Providence, Rhode Island. He died on 12 December 1928 at age 83.1 He obituary reads " Frank C. Angell, of the eighth American generation, tracing directly in male line from Thomas Angell, the founder, and a friend of Roger Williams. He is the younger son of James Halsey and Sarah Angell (Capron) Angell, and like his father is a lifelong resident of the village of Centerdale, Rhode Island, to which he came a very small boy, his birthplace, however, being the village of Allendale, Rhode Island, where his father was then a merchant. He was born March 9, 1845, was educated in the public schools, and in youth learned the harness maker's trade. He became an expert workman, established a shop and store in Centerdale in May, 1877, but he soon was compelled to seek enlarged quarters. These he found in the building he erected in 1881, known as the Masonic Hall Building, the harness shop occupying nearly the entire lower floor of that building. With the increased room he was able to add new lines to his stock, and there conducted a successful harness business of over a quarter of a century in Centerdale. Since then he has been engaged in the real estate business.

In the summer of 1868 Frank C. Angell, Marcus M. Joslen and Alexander W. Harrington initiated the movement to establish a free public library in Centerdale, then a country village of less than two hundred people. After preliminary meetings an organization was effected, known as The Union Library Association, and on May 13, 1869, a constitution and by-laws were adopted. The first list of officers of this association, which has always been under the care of Frank C. Angell, who has served as librarian from the opening day in 1870 until the present (1918), with the exception of two years, 1871 - 72.
The Union Library Association was incorporated in 1870, the library building thrown open to the public, July 4, 1870, at high noon, three hundred and fifty volumes being on the shelves. On February 17, 1877, it was voted a free public library, under the act of the Rhode Island Legislature of April 15, 1875, and has so existed, prosperous and useful, its six thousand volumes and other privileges free to all. Mr. Angell's term of service as librarian covers a period of forty-six years, his interest yet a deep and abiding one.
His connection with Roger Williams Lodge, No. 32, Free and Accepted Masons, is an equally remarkable one and constitutes a record. He has been secretary of the lodge (of which he and his father were charter members) for forty-three years, 1875 - 1918, and is the senior secretary of the Rhode Island Masonic body. He was made a Mason in Temple Lodge, No. 18, in 1874, and is a member of the Masonic Veterans Association, also Scituate Royal Chapter, No. 8. For twenty years he has been a warden of St. Albans Episcopal Church; is and has been for eighteen years town treasurer of the town of North Providence; has served as member of the Town Council; as a tax assessor, and in many ways his public spirit and loyalty to Centerdale have been manifested. He is the author of 'The Annals of Centerdale', from which voluminous extracts have been made in compiling this review, and in matters historical is a local authority. He is a worthy representative in the twentieth century of this worthy family founded by Thomas Angell in the seventeeth century, this nearly three hundred year period finding Angells upon the land owned by the first of the name in every year without lapse or break of continuous ownership.1
" He was buried in North Burial Ground, Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.1
     He appeared on the census of 1850 at North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, as the son of the head of the household, James Halsey Angell.2 Frank Capron Angell appeared on the census of 1860 at Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, as the son of the head of the household, James Halsey Angell.3 Frank Capron Angell appeared on the census of 1870 at North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, as the son of the head of the household, James Halsey Angell.4 Frank Capron Angell appeared on the census of 1880 at North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, as the son of the head of the household, James Halsey Angell.5 Frank Capron Angell appeared as the Head of Household on the census of 1900 in North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.6 He was a real estate dealer in 1900.6 Frank Capron Angell appeared as the Head of Household on the census of 1910 in North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.7 He was a real estate dealer in 1910.7 Frank Capron Angell appeared as the Head of Household on the census of 1920 in North Providence, Providence, Rhode Island.8 In 1920 Frank Capron Angell was the Treasurer for the town of North Providence, RI.8
