Franklin Columbus Wade, born 1848 in Tebo Twp., Henry Co., Missouri to Charles and Nancy (Casey) Wade. Mother, Nancy, removed Franklin and his three siblings, Sarah, William and Melissa to Griggsville, Pike Co., Illinois between 1861 and 1864.

At age 17, Franklin enlisted Feb. 17, 1865, Griggsville, Pike Co., Illinois in the Civil War, Union, Company G New, Illinois 7th Infantry Regiment, Private. The new recruits were sent directly to the South. Before they arrived, Lee had surrendered, and after a short guarding assignment, the Regiment was assigned to Washington D.C. The 7th Illinois Infantry was to participate in the President Lincoln Memorial to be held July 4. Franklin apparently was one of over 230 Co.

May such a young soul and all those like him rest in peace.
