Facts and Events
(VII) Edward, son of Dr. James (2) and Sally (Mulford) Wade, was born in Watervliet, New York, in the residence on the Troy and Schenectady turnpike, October 26, 1829, died July 10, 1890.

He was one of the compilers of the well-known fifth edition of the Revised Statutes of New York State. Mr. Wade, although rarely appearing in court in person, did an enormous amount of office business. He was most exact in everything he did, methodical to a degree, scrupulously honest and always thoroughly in earnest. Withal, he was a man of kind heart and most generous impulses, doing much good in a quiet, unostentatious manner in the way of charity. In politics he was a strong and consistent Republican. He was a nephew of Hon. Benjamin Wade, who for many years was United States senator from Ohio, and acting vice-president of the United States.
