Death of I.F. Wade
I. F. Wade died on Thursday morning at his home on South Washington street after a quick decline. It was thought at one time that he might be able to rally. He was born in Middletown, Ohio in 1811. He came to this city when it was only a government land office. His wife died fifty years ago and he never remarried. His living children are Mrs. E.W. Smock, of Denver, Colorado; Mrs. Stover, of this city, and Tip Wade, of Lafayette.
