Original info was:

1.  parents - Thomas Isaac Pangle and Mary J. "Mollie" Britt.  Although the death certificate for Joseph F. Pangle shows his father to be Isaac Pangle, US Federal Census data from 1860 shows him in the family of George Pangle in Tennessee.  NO census entries were found for an Isaac Pangle with a son Joseph F. in 1850 or 1860.  Also, Burnet County History, Vol II, page 239, states Joseph's parents to be George and Elizabeth Pangle.

2.  burial of Joseph Pangle - Marble Falls Cemetery.  Death certificate and Burnet County Cemeteries book show burial site to be Odd Fellows Cemetery.   

3.  Vivian Pangle - no death date. added from info of Leah Walker.

4.  added child of James Claude Pangle:  James Payton Pangle

5.  added child of Joseph F. Pangle:  Eliza Catherine Pangle
