Sandie, Just saw your 1999 posting -- we're connected -- I'm related to the Wades that possibly caused your gr grandmother to be disowned by her family.Otto Wade was my granduncle.I hope you're still out there.Just a month or so ago, I came across a Wade cousin and his daughter (a grandson of Ollie, as she was called) and we've been corresponding.He lives in Carlyle IL.
I have info on her parents Charles J. Allen and Rachel Wharton.I'll have to dig out copies of newspaper obit clippings for both of them, and I'll scan them for you.I'll also copy a text file from my family tree software for you if you'd like.I also have info on the Wades.
It's good to find a cousin .... I hope you don't hold a grudge after all these years!
I look forward to corresponding with you. Charlie Brummet
