"George Wade was one of the earliest citizens of Columbia. He had been born in North Carolina and had moved to Lancaster County, from which section he had entered the Revolution as captain of a company. In Columbia he became owner of many squares of land, especially in the southwestern section; his home is said to have been near the northwest corner of Main and Green Streets. He was one of the incorporators of the Columbia Male academy and of the Presbyterian church and in 1797 one of the town commissioners. His wife, Mary McDonald, died August 22, 1779. He married again Mrs. Martha Center, widow of Nathan Center (died in 1783), a sister of Col. Thomas Taylor. When he died in 1824[3] he was buried, it is said, in the Taylor graveyard; his grave is unmarked." History of Richland County by Edwin L. Green
