According to the book "David Wade: A Texas Pioneer", written by Houston Wade (great grandson of David Wade), published by LaGrange Journal, 1943:

"David Wade was the son of Daniel Fountain Wade, Sr., who was a soldier of the American Revolution and fought in the armies of the immortal George Washington. David Wade was born in Halifax County, Virginia about the year 1779, and was the great-grandfather of the writer."
"The records show that David Wade was a veteran of the War of 1812, and served as a private in Captain Patrick Anderson's company, Trueheart's 74 Regiment, Virginia Volunteers, and that he joined the army from Fairfax County, Virginia. The records show him enrolled as a soldier on dates of March 20, 1813, and also on July 2, 1813."
"The very first entry in our Bible reads as follows: 'Married, David Wade and Ann Brown, June 23, 1817'.
"The bridegroom end of this little family seems to have been afflicted with a bad case of the wanderlust and moved about over the South from State to State. We have traces of him in Quitman, Georgia, in Alabama and in Mississippi. The couple, however, seem to have established themselves, more or less, permanently in Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky, and it was there that their two sons were born to them."
"Mr. and Mrs. David Wade were proprietors of an Inn or Road House or Stage Station in the town of Glasgow, Kentucky, and it is from this place that they emigrated from to Texas, making the trip overland and crossing the Texas line at or near St. Augustine." "The destination of this little family of father, mother and two sons, was San Felipe de Austin." (The 2 sons were Joshua Robinson WADE--aka "John R.", "J.R." & "Robinson"--and William Wyatt Wade)
"Upon his arrival at San Felipe, David Wade was told that all desirable land in the immediate vicinity of San Felipe had already been taken up, but that it he would go a little farther West until he passed the first big creek, he would find plenty of good land on which he could settle. This he did and brought his covered wagon to rest on the West bank of Cummins' Creek, on the old San Felipe Trail, and settled in the extreme Eastern point of what is now Fayette County. His first home was located on land belonging to John Andrews."
"Still more family tradition has it that David Wade and his two sons made only one crop in Texas; that of the Spring of 1834. The Wades have ever been violently opposed to work (manual labor), and great-granddad reached the conclusion that the plow handle and hoe handle did not fit his hand, and that there were easier ways of making a living than by the sweat of his brow."
The first home of the Wade family in Texas having been on the old San Felipe Trail evidently gave them the idea of going into the transportation business--that is, hauling freight and maintaining a reliable system for the moving of merchandise from the coast to the interior. This business they followed until the railroad was built through Fayette County on to San Antonio."
"Great-Granddad, when the land was young;
Barred his door with a wagon tongue;
Times were tough and the Indians mocked;
He said his prayers with his shotgun cocked.
Just to show how literally true was the above verse, we will repeat the oft-told tale of our sires who relate that during the time the Wade home was located in the Cummins' Creek bottom, the Indians roamed through the land during the light of the moon, stealing everything that was not tied down, under lock and key or red hot. Our people tell of how they were forced to tie their horses to the front gallery posts and stand guard over them during the night, and even with this precaution the red devils got off with one of our best horses; purloined it from right under the nose of grandfather while he was sitting on the gallery with a gun in his lap."
During the time of the "Runaway Scrape" (the most tragic incident that has ever befell the lot of Fayette County to endure), "David Wade was at this time in the transportation business and had the advantage of the rest of the refugees in that he possessed the best teams of any, and so when Samuel Houston broke his promise to our people and started his shameful retreat from the Colorado River, Mr. Wade did not wait any longer but lit out for East Texas with all his family and the household goods that he could take along. He evidently left home on March 27, 1836, and it can be readily seen that he is bound to have made excellent time in his mad flight, for he makes the sworn statement that he was in San Augustine on April 21, 1836, a total of 25 days on the road. Some idea of the panic of the people were in can be gained when it was told on David Wade that he was traveling so fast that he lost his fourteen year old son along the way and never did find him until after his return, following the Battle of San Jacinto."
"After the return of David Wade to his home when peace once more reigned, and he found his lost son and the older boy got back from the army, and after the death of his dear Ann, Mr. Wade did not seem to take much interest in things, he only went on improving and increasing his business. He secured an interest in the Stage Line and, remembering his experience in Kentucky, he decided to erect a stage station near Fayetteville, which he did. With the help of his slaves he maintained an inn, provided a change of horses for the stage, and sold meals and lodging to the traveling public; also there were liquid refreshments in the shape of a big brown jug to be had for the tired traveler."
"David Wade was a property owner in Texas as early as October 18, 1835, for the Land Records of the Texas Library, in the Spanish Archives, Vol. No. 34, Page 65, shows that David Wade was granted a league of land in Wharton County on that date. Also he was granted an additional league of land in Bexar County; record of this can be found in the Bexar First Class No. 2035. Old Mexican Land Grants show that he was granted a third league of land 'on the waters of the Trinity', but the records fail to show whether this is on the Trinity River or Trinity Bay."
"There is on file in Colorado County a deed recorded in Book A, pages 338 and 339 where it is shown that David Wade acquired ownership to a city lot in the town of Columbus. This piece of ground is described as having been Lot No. 2, in Block No. 7. This old deed is dated October 30, 1838, and is still in the possession of the writer."
During the reconstruction days, "All of our nine slaves, except 'Uncle Wash' and 'Aunt Viney' quit us cold and were never heard of again. 'Uncle Wash' flatly refused to have anything to do with 'them there no count n---ars' and remained loyal to the end. This old slave now lies buried in the 'white folks' graveyard in Fayetteville, near his old master."

According to the book "An Early History of Fayette County", written by Leonie Rummel Weyand and "our" Houston Wade, published by LaGrange Journal in 1936:

"The first American settlers of the Fayetteville neighborhood were: Green L. and Reddin R. Andrews; E. E. and James Blackwell; thirty-seven members of the Breeding family; Christopher Clark; Wesley W. Donothan; Benjamin F. Dunn; R. K. Day; Dr. D. C. Gregory; Umbleton Gregory; James Groce; Francis M. Johnson; A. B. F. Kerr; John M. Macalester; S. S. Munger; Neil Munn; Prof. J. E. Murray; J. E. Pearsall; William R. And S. S. Pollard; James T. Ross; Wm. J. Russell; T. C. Scates; Isaac and Robert Sellers; P. Dule Turner; John H. Ujffy; David Wade and his two sons, Wm. W. Wade and J. R. Wade; Nicholas Tyler Ware, and G. M. T. Webb."
"There were three periods of immigration accounting for the population of Fayetteville. The early Americans, followed by the Germans, who were in turn succeeded by the Bohemians. Today Fayetteville is essentially Bohemian with a sprinkling of German. Most Americans have sold out and moved to other fields."
***From Fayetteville, our David Wade moved to the Round Top community of Fayette County, TX. Round Top lies on the northeastern margin of Fayette County on Cummins Creek.***
"The first settlers in the Round Top community were slave owners who came there in the forties. Some of the largest slave-holders of this section were the Ledbetters, Flacks, McGuires, Taylors, Pullens, Hills, Wades, Waldons, Robisons, Gaithers and Townsends."
"The muster rolls of these two Fayette County Companies (Dawson's Company and Rabb's Company) have never been located, but in the course of our (authors Weyand and Wade) research work we have established the names below as participating in this military movement (Vasquez's Raid of March 6, 1842): # 18-Wade, Joshua Robinson; #19-Wade, William Wyatt."
During the War Days at Home, "the women were busy making clothes for the soldiers, knitting socks, sweaters, and mittens." "In Fayetteville, the women divided the work among themselves, each being assigned a special task; some carded cotton and wool, some spun the thread, wove the cloth on the loom, while others made garments of the finished cloth." "To Wade's (Houston Wade) grandmother, Elizabeth Madison Wade, fell the task of moulding bullets. With the help of an iron pot, ladle, bullet moulds, and old 'Aunt Viney', negro slave wife of 'Uncle Wash', she put in many a weary, hot hour before her big fireplace, running lead into bullets to be shot at 'them Damyankees'." "The Wades lost all nine of their slaves except 'Uncle Wash' and 'Aunt Viney', who left us only at death."

Note According to the book "David Wade: A Texas Pioneer", written by Houston Wade; published by the LaGrange Journal, 1943:

General Samuel Houston may have been a great man, and probably was, but we do not seem to be able to see it; all that rises before our vision is a little green mound on the banks of Cummins' Creek where our great-grandmother now sleeps. San Jacinto was won on April 21, and she died on December 10, surviving the 'Runaway Scrape' only nine months.1
