Hi All, I am looking for information about the 23 children of John Nangle of Trenton NJ b. ~1838 in Ireland and about John and his ancestors.From family history, I've heard that both the first and last child were named Katherine.
He was married to Annie, according to the 1880 census and they had 7 children by 1880: Kate (b. 1862), May (b. 1864), Charles b 1868, Ella b. 1870, Hattie b. 1873, Farragut B. 1874, and Henretta 9 months old in 1880.
I believe this is my maternal great grandfather.From family stories, I've heard that his first wife was Annie.When she died, he remarried and had many more children, the fourth to the last was my grandfather John Sherman Nangle b. 1891 of New Jersey, then Ohio, then Florida. When my grandfather was 13, circa 1904, his mother became crippled and the children were all moved to an orphanage together.He ran away from the orphanage immediately, but I believe he stayed in touch with his siblings as many of them ended up in Ohio, then in Orlando Florida with him.
My grandfather, John Sherman Nangle died (before I was born) in 1964 in Orlando Florida, where several of his brothers and sisters had relocated after the 1929 stock market crash.He had a dolamite mine there, perportedly given to him by the Benz family.I know of at least 3 of his sisters/nieces living in the same neighborhood as him and my mother in Orlando, FL.
One of his nieces, Etha Nangle Ford was doing a lot of family history and I've lost track of her.
