Thanks. But I believe that the information is mistaken. The census information shows a Benjamin Wade, but after checking the local history, there is no daughter, Phebe.
However, Mark Kunzman went to the genealogy section of Binghampton Library, NY, and discovered in a folder a reference to Edward Wade Jr. (Robert>Edward>Edward) w/ sister Phebe, who married Abner Alden (the folder was put together by someone [forget the name], who was researching that family). I think that she was born, according to this information, in Connecticut (I don't have the information right in front of me). Edward Wade Sr. and father, Robert, were in the Rev. War, and their names show up on the DAR lists. Nevertheless, I haven't been able to confirm sister, Phebe.
Thanks for the update all the same. I would be very interested, however, to find any information about the wife of Abner's son, Israel Alden, who married Hannah Johnson. I know her birthdate, marriage place and date, and her death date. She filed probate in Franklin county, Iowa, but I have yet to find out where she was born or her parents (I suspect Medina, OH, but I haven't followed this up yet except to find possible fathers from the 1840 census).
