John, I read your message on GenForum concerning your father's family.In checking briefly, I found what appears to be your grandfather..John Melvin Angle who died in Washington, Oregan.He was born in TN June 24, 1927 and died April 2, 2010. (The fact that he was born in TN leads me to believe he was from the German Angles...but not necessarily!) If you live near Washington Ore, you may want to go there to ck records and see what you can learn.
Also found your father...maybe...born January 7, 1956 probably in California and died in Portland, Ore., March 1993 at age 37.If this seems to fit, you will want to follow the trails you have here to get more family history. I have their SS numbers if you would like to have them to do further research.Pls email me direct: emcach @yahoo.com.Good luck, Betty
