Angada was a great Vanara (monkey) in the Hindu epic Ramayana, who helped Rama to search his wife Sita along with Sugriva and other monkeys. Angada was the son of monkey king Vali and his wife Tara. He was the nephew as well as stepson of Sugriva.

Vali at the time of his death requested Sugriva to take care of his son Angada and to protect him everyway, as Sugriva would have done in case of his own son. Vali stated that Angada was dearer than life to him and asked Sugriva to be his refuge in dangers and father, donor and protector to him.

Sugriva consecrated Angada as the prince of Kiskindhya and groomed him in such a manner that he was able to successfully execute any duty of higher responsibility. When Vanara task was formed for the search of Sita, Angada was assigned the post of assistant to Nila, one of the senior most deputies of Sugriva. Sugriva ordered Angada to approach the senior monkeys with his command. Sugriva made Angada the assistant of Nila to accomplish his training under an able hand. Once the youngster Angada learnt the intricate details of his job he was assigned with a more important duty that was heavy for a Vanara of his age. He was given the task to find Sita in every possible places of South India, as it was known that Sita was hidden in some place of South, either in mainland or in the island. Angada scoured every city of South up to the seashore, Rameshwaram, to fulfill his duty. When the battalion was formed to proceed further south, Angada was made the head of the team.

Angada led the Vanara team comprising of senior monkeys like Hanuman, Jambavan very efficiently. As a prince, Angada got loyalty and respect from other monkeys. But in some cases Vanaras gave in under stress and angada charged them up as the part of his duty.

When Sita was found in Lanka, Rama wanted to find out some peaceful solution of rescuing Sita and averting the war. The messengers sent to Ravana were again led by Angada. Angada explained Ravana what was Rama`s desire and said that if he released Sita the war could be avoided. Angada tried by every means to convince Ravana, but Ravana was firm at his resolution to face a battle instead of returning Sita peacefully.

At one point of the conversation Angada placed his foot firmly on the ground and threw a challenge that if anybody in the Ravana`s court was able to uproot his foot Rama would lose the battle and return without Sita. All the Rakshasa courtier of Ravana`s army and even his son Indrajit tried to lift Angada`s left foot but nobody succeeded. Ravana was angered as he felt humiliated and started insulting Rama with abusive words.

Angada was so furious that he hit the ground with enormous force with both his hands and it caused a minor tremor in earth. All the courtiers were frightened and flew away. Ravana fell down from his throne and his crowns rolled off from his heads. Before he could put them back on his heads Angada grabbed four of those and threw them towards the direction where rama was waiting with his brother Lakshmana. When Vanaras saw the flying crowns approaching them they got panicked. But Rama knew that those were crowns of Ravana. Hanuman caught the flying crowns and placed them in front of Rama.

Ravana ordered his men to catch and kill Angada but he laughed aloud and escaped. In the great war of Ramayana, Angada killed Ravana`s son Devantak.

66 In Vedic religion,Tvaṣṭṛ (Sanskrit: त्वष्टृ), is the first born creator of the universe.

67 It is said that Karna married few "Suta" women. Known are Vrushali and Supriya.

Here all sons are mentioned for Karna and Vrushali. There is a possibility that some of these sons belong to Supriya and/or other women, but there is no evidence that shows that way.  
Karna (I109)
68 It is very unclear that if "Sura" and "Shurasena" are the same people.

"The son of Bhajamana 11 was Viduratha; his son was sura; his son was samin 12; his son was Pratikshatra 13; his son was Swayambhoja 14; his son was Hridika, who had Kritavarman, satadhanu, Devamidhusha, and others 15. sura, the son of Devamidhusha 16, was married to Marisha, and had by her ten sons. On the birth of Vasudeva, who was one of these sons, the gods, to whom the future is manifest, foresaw that the divine being would take a human form in his family, and thereupon they sounded with joy the drums of heaven: from this circumstance Vasudeva was also called anakadunbubhi 17. His brothers were Devabhaga, Devasravas, Anadhrishti, Karundhaka, Vatsabalaka, srinjaya,

[paragraph continues] syama, samika, and Gandusha; and his sisters were Pritha, srutadeva, srutakirtti, srutasravas, and Rajadhidevi."

Ref 1 :
16 Daughters claimed
Marriage of Daksha and Prasuti was the first official marriage of first Manvantara. Both gave birth to 16 daughters:
Shraddha, Martini, Daya,Shanti, Trishti, Pushti, Kriya, Unatti, Buddhi, Medha, Titiksha, Lajja, Moorti, Svaha, Swadha, Sati
13 Daughters married to Dharma, Svaha to Agni, Swadha to Pitras and Sati to Lord Shiva.

Ref 2:
13 Daughters claimed.
With his wife Prasuti, he is the father of thirteen daughters, namely Aditi, Diti, Dānu, Kala, Danāyū, Sinhika, Krodha, Pradha, Viswa, Vinata, Kapila, Muni, and Kadru.[2] Many of whom were married to Soma. Daksha found that Soma overly favored one daughter (Rohini) over the others, thus neglecting their needs and flouting his responsibilities. For this, Daksha cursed him to wither and die. The daughters intervened and made his death periodic, symbolized by the waxing and waning of the moon.

Ref 3: Vishnu Purana - Yet another set of daughters.

Ref 4: Matsya Purana - Yet another set of Daughters.

Multiple sources suggest Vishwa / Vishva/ Visva was married to Dharmadeo not Kashyap.
Tamra seems to also have name of Khasa.
Krodha also has name of Krodhavasha, Krodhavasa.

84 Ref :

Thataka was a beautiful Yaksha princess who turned into demoness in the epic Ramayana. Thataka was the daughter and only child of the Yaksha king Suketu. Thataka had a romance with Asura king Sumali. She had two sons with Sumali, Subahu and Mareecha and a daughter Kaikesi. Thataka and Sumali decided to marry their daughter to the sage Vishrava so that she could have the progeny that would be omnipotent and ruler of the three worlds. They organized a meeting between Kaikesi and Vishrava , in a way that it seemed to be a `chance encounter` and the Rishi, who was already married could fell in love with Kaikesi. Kaikesi and Vishrava had three sons namely Ravana, Vibhishana and Kumbhakarna and a daughter named Soorpanakha.

Rishi Agastya cursed both Suketu and Sumali to death. Thataka took the curse on herself through her son Subahu to take revenge on the sage. As a result sage Agastya was enraged and cursed Thataka that she will lose her beautiful physique and both Thataka and her son Subahu would be transformed to horrific demonic creatures with cruel, cannibalistic nature.

Tathaka and Subahu became revengeful on sages and they attempted to harass as many rishis as they could by destroying their Yagnas (sacrifice) with rains of flesh and blood. Brahmarishi Vishwamitra was especially the goal of Thataka. Vishwamitra could bear no more Thataka`s harassment. He finally approached King Dasaratha and sought his help.The King send two of his four sons, sixteen years old Rama and Lakshman to the forest to protect both sage Vishwamitra and his Yajna.

When Thataka and Subahu attempted again to destroy the Yajna of Vishwamitra, rama first warned them not to do so. They did not listened to him and laughed at Rama by calling him a `mere boy`. Rama then killed both the mother and son. This act helped Thataka to gain the blessings of Vishwamitra and all other assembled sages.

86 Sahadeva also married Vijaya, the daughter of Dyutimat, the king of Madra, obtaining her in a self-choice ceremony and begot upon her a son named Suhotra (MBh 1.95). He was married to Magadha King Jarasandha's granddaughter (Mbh 15.1). Jarasandha's son's name was also Sahadeva.
Suhotra (I486)
87 Sasavindu was lord of the fourteen great gems. He had a hundred thousand wives and a million of sons. Shasabindu (I522)
88 She is mentioned to be daughter of Ikshvaku? This throws off the generations. So not linked directly.

Suhotra married Suvarna, the daughter of Ikshvaku. To her was born a son named Hasti.

92 The Bhagawat provides different names for sons although there seems to be agreement with number of sons.

१. अक्रूर; २. आसंग; ३. सारमेय;४. मृदुर; ५. मृदुविद्; ६. गिरि; ७. धर्मवृद्ध; ८. सुवर्मन्; ९. क्षेत्रोपेक्ष; १०. अरिमर्दन; ११. शत्रुघ्न; १२. गंधमाह; १३. प्रतिबाहु

93 The sons of ahuka were Devaka and Ugrasena. The former had four sons, Devavat, Upadeva, Sudeva, and Devarakshita, and seven daughters, Vrikadeva, Upadeva, Devarakshita, srideva, santideva, Sahadeva, and Devaki: all the daughters were married to Vasudeva.

Confusion on this, the names of sons and daughters are same. That may need further investigation.

94 The text relates to Sura. (this can also be Shura)

"The son of Bhajamana 11 was Viduratha; his son was sura; his son was samin 12; his son was Pratikshatra 13; his son was Swayambhoja 14; his son was Hridika," 
Sura (I589)
95 There are prominent references to Gandhari marrying to Dhritarashtra, but her sisters were married to Dhritarashtra as well.

There is a very small account of what happened those 9 sisters of Gandhari. 
Subala (I117)
96 There are several references that Shurasena was father of Vasudeva. It is very much assumed that Sura=Shurasena.

There is not direct reference of them being the same. 
Shurasena (I587)
97 There is enough of ambiguous references all over internet!!!

Brahma's mind born sons are the seers Marici, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratuj, Pracetas, Vashishta, Bhrgu and Narada. From Brahma's body came his nine sons Daksa, Dharma, Kama, Anger, Greed, Delusion (Maya), Lust, Joy, Death and Bharata and one daughter called Angaja.

98 This marriage / wedlock of Vishvamitra and Menaka throws all generations off. This Vishvamitra is found to be born and had Shakuntala as daughter so many generations before Dushyanta is born.

So if Duhyanta and Shakuntala has to be married, this Vishvamitra seems totally out of place or shut have lived so many years due to his penance etc.

100 Vishnu puran mentions Dasarha and also there is a mention of Vijaya being daughter of Dasarha and she is married into Kuru Kingdom. Mapped the generations and both mentioned Dasarha happen to be approximately same time.

Hoping they are same and so related them. Disjoint them if found evidence that they are different people.
