Several of the Wades came to Fremont County, IA.The following material was originally published in a now-defunct periodical entitled NEBRASKA AND MIDWEST GENEALOGICAL RECORD, by the Nebraska Genealogical Society 1922-1944. The entire series is now available for review at the Nebraska State Historical Society, or on the internet.

In the same 1850 census, some Wades that we have so far not identified as ours, were included at PAGE NO:148aEnumerated 5th Sept 1850 by T L Buckham, Ass't Marshal ========================================================== 187575WADEJefferson46MFarmerOH 197575WADEMaria35F OHX 207575WADESanford12M INX 217575WADEWilliam8M INX 227575WADEAaron7M INX 237575WADEMahalia1F IA 247575WADEElizabeth15F INX
The following copied from the Freemont Co. History Page, website, appears to be about the above Wade family: "The first Wade in Fremont Co. Jefferson Wade came to this county in 1844. In August of that year he located at Pleasant grove, four miles southeast of Sidney, having purchased the claim of Rufus Hitchcock, who was here as a trader previous to 1840. Garrison B. Red and Nathaniel Tombs also came in 1844, and a man by the name of Slusher located at the foot of the bluff; just south of Wilkinson's."
The Wades had a connection with the Donahoos one generation behind my Andrew Jackson Doanhoo, as listed below: CENSUS YR:1850STATE or TERRITORY:IACOUNTY:FremontDIVISION:District #22REEL NO:432184PAGE NO:152b REFERENCE:Enumerated 10 Sept, 1850T L Buckham, Ass't Marshal ========================================================== 1145145 MORRISONMila Ann21F KY 2145145 MORRISONJames18M FarmerKY 4145145 MORRISONMary17F KY 5145145 WADERuth Ann17F IN 6145145 WADEBarbara11F IN 7145145 WADECrytal9 M IN 8146146 DONAHOOWilliam38M FarmerVA 9146146 DONAHOOTemperance38F TNX 10146146 DONAHOOPeter14M IN 11146146 DONAHOOLovina Jane8F IA 12146146 DONAHOOBetsy6FIA 13146146 DONAHOOWilliam5MMO 14146146 DONAHOOSarah3FMO 15146146 DONAHOOJoseph1MIA
The above is one extended family, with two additions: E.B. Wade and Margaret Morrison were omitted from the above listing by the transcriber, although they appear in the handwritten census record.E.B. was added to the bottom of page 152b and Margaret was added on page 153a, with a widow named Lucas and her family.Margaret had no known connection with the family, and was not listed with that family on the handwritten census, so her inclusion in the Lucas home on the transcription appears to be a scrivner's error. Never would have found these without the handwritten census records. The following two should be added to the family above, as follows:
42145145 WADEE B43F KY
3145145 MORRISONMargaret16F KY
Now, for the "can't tell players without a program" crowd, I'll try to sort them all out:
*William Donahoo above is Andrew Jackson Donahoo's older brother, born in 1812; with him his wife Temperance and their children. *The mother of the Morrison children and all except Ruth Ann of theWade children, was Eleanor Crystal. *The father of the Morrison children was John Morrison, her first husband. *The father of all the Wade children was James G. Wade, her second husband. *The name of the first wife of James G. Wade, mother of Ruth Ann and two other daughters (one of whom should be "my" Jane), is unknown to me. *Absolom Donahoo, A.J.'s closest brother (being only 2 years olderthan A.J.) married the child called Mary Morrison above, on 4/20/1853 in Fremont Co., Iowa.
