Born about 1836, Thomas W. (*sic - must be H) Wade is found in the Browns Valley Census in 1870 with his wife, Sarah and two children.  He went to Mulberry, in Clinton County and is listed as a physician by the Indiana State Board of Health in 1882. Nothing else was found regarding Dr. Wade.

Note: After the above was printed, more was found on Dr. Wade.  Besides being listed in the 1870 Browns Valley Census, he is listed in Madison Twp, Clinton County, Indiana with Sarah and WIlloughby and Azarius.

They are still living there in 1880 - Thomas 44 born in Ohio father Ohio mother NJ
Wife, Sarah E. 32 and Azarius D. age 10 at this point.

The 1900 census brings a bit more information. They are still in Madison Township with the boys grown and gone.
This census tells us that Thomas was born in February 1836 and Sarah in March 1848 (Indiana).

Sarah is probably Sarah Jane Cato married Thomas Wade Bk 2 p 247 Dubois County on 10 March 1866
