Names and Page # Index


DAVID F. ANGENY, a builder and undertaker of Danboro, belongs to one of the old and honored families of Bucks county. Several generations of the name have resided here, and have ever upheld the political and moral status of the community and aided in the material improvement of their localities. The grandfather, John Angeny, who lived and died in Bucks county, followed farming throughout his entire business career. He married a Miss Kerns, and they became the parents of two children, the elder being John, of Philadelphia, now deceased.

Jacob, the younger son of John Angeny, was born in Bedminster township, January 8, 1821, and in early life drove a team used in connection with the conduct of a flour and feed business in Philadelphia. He was thus employed for some years, after which he returned to Bucks county and began farming on his own account, carrying on agricultural pursuits until his death, which occurred on the 19th of December, 1891. His life was ever upright and honorable and for a number of years he served as a deacon in the Reformed church of Tohickon, in which he held membership. He also made for himself a creditable record as a soldier of the civil war. He married Miss Lydia Fluck, and they became the parents of ten children: John H.; David F.; Clayton F.; Jacob F.; Mary, the wife of John King; Anna, the wife of Harvey Fluck; Katie, the wife of Ervin Fluck; Emma and Ida, twins, the former the wife of Frank Smell and the latter of Asher Wycker; and Amelia, who completes the family.

David F. Angeny, who was born in Haycock township, Bucks county, September 21, 1857, is indebted to the public school system of the state for the educational privileges he enjoyed. When fifteen years of age he began earning his own living by entering upon an apprenticeship at the carpenter's trade under Jacob Cope, of Quakertown, with whom he remained for two years. He then began working for John Loux, who was his employer for four years, and on the expiration of that period began business for himself as a carpenter and builder in Dublin. Since that time he has been identified with building operations in Bucks county. About 1883 he removed to Danboro, and in connection with carpentering established and conducted an undertaking business. He has a thorough knowledge of the builder's art, and his excellent workmanship and fidelity to the terms of a contract have gained for him a liberal and growing patronage. His interest in community affairs prompts his co-operation in many measures for the general good. He is a member of the Reformed church of Tohickon.

Mr. Angeny has been married twice. He first wedded Sallie Leatherman, and they became the parents of five children: Edwin L., born November 20, 1882; Christina Beatty, November 1, 1885; Willis L., August 6, 1887; Jacob Warren, August 28, 1889; and Flora L., born March 4, 1892, died May 1, 1893; Mrs. Sallie Angeny departed this life August 13, 1892. For his second wife David F. Angeny chose Miss Amanda Gross, a daughter of Joseph L. and Mary (Landis) Gross. There are three children by this marriage: Howard, born November 30, 1895; Clarence, January 2, 1899; and Arthur, June 24, 1903.
