Charles was born December
of 1839 in Smithfield, Rhode Island
Father Ashel Angell
Mother Sarah ??
Charles enlisted on 26 May 1862 into the 10th Regment as private and was promoted
to 2nd Lieutenant and Quartermaster (25 July 1862) when James H. Armington resigned that position 19 July 1862,
note that in 1850 Armington and Angell were next door neighbours in Smithfield, RI. Leading us to believe that Charles was
recommended by Armington for the Quartermasters position and commission to 2nd Lieutenant. Charles mustered out on 01 Sept
1862 in Providence, RI with the rest of the 10th Regiment
His occupation was accountant/bookkeeper, we have information that he was married
married sometime between 1860 and 1870 but we do not know to whom. The same information shows that his wife past away prior
to 1880 when Charles is listed as widowed in the 1880 US Census, no known children. At this time (1880) Charles was working
in the Illinois State Penitentiary as a bookkeeper he is shown to be living in Joliet, Illinois for the rest of his life,
He stopped being shown on any documents US Census or other in 1920, we can only assume that he is buried in Illinois.
