Thomas Mayes Angle moved to Milton, North Carolina around 1899 and purchased the Dr. Stamps home, which burned around 1929. Source: The Heritage of Caswell County, North Carolina, Jeannine D. Whitlow, Editor (1985) at 91 (Article #19, "Angle" by Lois Sydnor Angle Love). Note: The name of the house that burned may have been "Glenburnie."

Late in life James H. (Jack) Miles secured the services of T. M. Angle of Milton, North Carolina, to operate or assist in operation of the distillery in Anderson Township, Caswell County. Arch Lindsey of Yanceyville, North Carolina, was the bookkeeper. The exact dates of operation are not known. It appears that the distillery closed with the coming of North Carolina's prohibition law in 1908.
