Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Angeline "Angie" POWELL

In the 1870 census, Angie was still at home as a 21 year old school teacher.

She was described in her husband's biography: "His wife is a charming woman, who, while her chief interests are centered in her home and family, presides with great dignity and elegance over the domestic realm. She is a delightful hostess, making rich or poor, great or small, feel at home and easy in her gracious presence."

1906 She was one of the first Deaconesses elected to serve in the First Christian Church but according to church records "their position is not recognized with any regularity and they held no authority on the Board of the church."
