The following excerpt is from: The History of Menard and Mason Counties, Illinois, compiled by Rev R.D. Miller and Gen. J.M. Ruggles, published in 1879, Kilbourne Township, Page 801.

John C. Ade, farmer; P.O. Kilbourne; was born in Norick, Wurtemburg, Germany, July 26, 1824; son of Michael Ade, whose wife's name prior to her marriage was Barbara Ceh. John was 32 years of age before he left home, at which time he emigrated to this country; he came first to Hamilton Co., Ohio, where he remained three years employed as gardener; from there he went to Middletown and stayed one year, and from there to Berlin, Sangamon Co., where he farmed five years.

In September, 1859, he moved to this county and located where he now resides, on section 34, and has now eighty-six acres of land, which he has cleared and earned by "hard-knocks", economy and good management.
