  • Notes 
    • The census record shows that Wade was at school in 1910. According to the Ashe County librarian, Wade graduated from Trinity College (now Duke University) at Durham in 1912 with honors. The librarian says he served 12 years as a High School principal in Ashe County. In 1913 he is shown as the principal of Helton High School in Ashe County. A record from 1916 shows Helton High School with 30 students and one teacher. He apparently entered the Marine Corps in 1918. By the 1920 census he is shown as a clothing salesman. In 1930 he is shown as a department store manager in Ashland, Boyd County, KY. The 1940 census shows him back in Ashe County as a "teacher."
