The subject of this sketch was a lad of ten years when his parents made the journey overland from Pennsylvania to this county, and settled upon a tract of wild land on what is now known as Buck Horn Prairie, from which the father built up a good farm and where the parents spent their last days, the father passing away first and the mother joining her husband in the silent land four weeks later.
The boyhood and youth of our subject were spent in a manner common to the sons of pioneer farmers, and when reaching manhood and soon after becoming of age, he was married to Miss Sarah Northcutt, who was born in this county in 1830. Her parents were natives of Kentucky, and early settlers of this county, where they died in middle life. Of this union there have been born two children, the eldest son, William H., Jr., married a Miss James, and they live in Lynnville, of which he is the Postmaster, and where he carries on general merchandising. Elizabeth is married and living in the West. Mr. Angelo without making any great stir in the world, pursues the even tenor of his way as an honest man and a good citizen, voting the straight Democratic ticket and striving to do as little harm as possible.
