Wade Thomas Case [Male] b. 1762 Connecticut - d. 06 APR 1826 Butler Co. Ohio

TIMELINE on the Wade family

A Joseph Wade married Mary CASE, no proof of connection, however the naming system fits.

About 1760, Thomas CASE Wade was born, probably, in Connecticut and moved to Monogalia Co. Virginia. At some point he must have lived in New Jersey. His birth year is estimated as such because he witnessed a will in 1781 and likely was an adult. There was some connection to George Wade who moved to Monogalia Co. in 1775.

1771 or 1773, Sarah (Sally) Ferris born (Probably Stamford, C.T.)
Father; Isaac Ferris - Mother; Mary Sherwood

October 18, 1781, Thomas Case Wade witnessed a will for Aaron Moore. Mr. Moore was the father of Elizabeth Moore who married Alexander Wade. Alexander and Elizabeth had eleven children: George, Aaron, Mary, Elijah, Alexander, Thomas, Abigail, Sarah, Elisha, Elizabeth and Hosea. This looked like our line until the comment after the will of THOMAS CASE WADE was probated. His son Jethro sold the land in VA. to Thomas Wade, son of Alexander.

1788 Major Benjamin Stites and company landed on the first bank below the mouth of the Little Miami river (Hamilton co. Ohio). In the company were five families and 13 men without families and Thomas C. Wade and John S. Gano were among them.

1790 Old Columbia Baptist Church (Hamilton County, Ohio) started. Among first members were Miss Ferris, Isaac Ferris and Thomas C. Wade, also John S. Gano. [ The nine members starting this church transferred their membership from the Baptist Church at SCOTCH PLAINS, NEW JERSEY.]
About 1791 (some say 1797) Thomas Case Wade and Sarah Ferris married in Butler Co. Ohio

9 children born, from 1792 - 1808 - Mary Piner Wade about 1804.

OUR FAMILY BIBLE RECORDS show Silas Poyner born August 8, 1794
And wife Mary (Wade) born November 22, 1804, and children: Rebecca, Sarah, Thomas Wade, Charlotte, Mary, Loretta, Rhoda Ferris, Elizabeth Clarinda and Peter. Also listed: Katherine Wade, b. August 11, 1758 and Elisha Wade b. March 1, 1769.

Marriage index: Selected Counties of Ohio, 1789-1850
Mary Wade and Silas Pointer (Poyner) in Butler Co., Ohio, June 17, 1824.

Mary and Silas named their first son Thomas Wade Poyner. (probably Thomas Case Wade Poyner. His father's will lists "Thomas C W Poyner".
Daughter Rebecca married Wyatt Dickerson- she was born 1826 in Ohio, died 1903 in Pipe Creek, Tx.

1820 Butler Co. Ohio census:
Thomas C Wade....13 in household.

April 6, 1826 Thomas Case Wade died in Middletown, Butler County, Ohio

A Christmas card (from Grand Pa and Grand Ma Vawter) addressed to Patricia Vawter
dated 1942 had a note on the back:
Dear Patricia Jene
I am giving you my Great Grandmother's teaspoon, Sarah Wade, which is your
Great Great Great Grandmother.
(The teaspoon has been located, apparently tucked back in a drawer for 60 plus years. It is small,
very worn, and has a monogram of S W.)

In his will, Thomas Case Wade allowed his wife, Sally, to have the general charge, use, and direction of the farm where they then lived for the raising up and schooling of the children. The half section of land he owned in Preble County was to be divided into four parts by John Walts and Henry Bosworth for Jethro Wade, Elon Wade, Isaac F. Wade and Ezra Wade, his sons, as they respectively arrived at full age. He gave his farm on the headwaters of Dunkard Creek in Monongalia County (Virginia) to his son Jethro to sell, the proceeds to be divided so as to make all his children equal. His daughters, Samantha, Loretta, and Mary Piner, were to be made equal and were to have an "Equal outset at their respective marriages in money or other property." He gave to his son, Thomas Wade and to his grandson, John Wade, such portions of his home farm as would make them in point of worth equal to his other children. The work of setting off to them their portions was to be done by two justices of the peace of Lemon Township. The seventh provision of his will was as follows: "It is my will and direction that my grandson, John Wade, have the desk and Bible which was once the property of his father, Harvey Wade."
The executors of his will were his wife and James Heaton.

From the Ferris Family website:
( SARAH FERRIS born 1773 Stamford CT and died 1849 Butler Co OH; married 1797/98 in Hamilton Co OH, Thomas Case Wade [son of Edward and Mary Wade] born 1759/62 Maryland and died April 6, 1826 Butler Co OH; he was a Rev War Vet from Somerset NJ; Wade was among the 26 people led by Benjamin Stites who founded Columbia in 1788; he was 1 of the 9 founders of the Columbia Baptist Church; helped erect the first church at Columbia and the 2d church at Duck Creek; in 1806, he sold his quarter section of land for $1,000 to a Welshman, the Rev William Jones, the 4th pastor of the Duck Creek Church.
