- [S428] William Gilbert Scroggins, Notes on William Wade, Dorothy D Ellis,unpublished, Bible published by C. Alexander and Company, 1834,Bible of Royal Wade,Pages 1- 3,
The Wade Bible is an Alexander's Stereotype Edition, published by C. Alexander and Company, Athenian Building, Franklin Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1834. It has not been determined to whom it originally belonged, who made the entries or precisely how it descended to Ruth Duncan Ellis, who gave it to her daughter Dorothy Ellis Hedges, but it is reasonable to assume that she received it from her mother Martha Wade Duncan. The Bible also contained a loose-leaf birth record for the family of Jones and Polly Crook Johnson.
While William G. Scroggins resided in New York City, he visited Bagdad soon after receiving a transcript of the Bible entries from Ronald Harrod in 1976. Mr. Scroggins telephoned Mrs. Hedges for permission to see and photograph the Bible. She reluctantly agreed, but when he arrived at her home, shortly after calling, she did not answer the door, apparently uneasy about admitting strangers into her house and a jealous guardian of the Bible which Ronald Harrod, another Wade descendent, described as "very old and rotten and moths have eaten part of it." It measured about 12 by 8 inches. The front cover was missing and the back cover was "very stiff" leather. Some of the pages appeared to be missing, from when he saw it some fifteen years earlier, while it was in the possession of Ruth Duncan Ellis.
Most of the upper third of the family record page, containing the family of Royal and Rachel Jones Wade, is missing because of a diagonal tear, that carried away the names of the first four entries which probably included the parents, since the first remaining notation is the day and year of the birth of their first child Mary Wade in 1794:
Oct. 21, 1797
Sarah Wade, born Sep. 19, 1799
Rachael Wade, born May 8, 1801
Susanah Wade, born Jul 2, 1802
John Wade, born Jan. 2, 1803
Marget Wade, born Apr. 28, 1805
Anderson Wade, born Dec. 9, 1808
Isaac Wade, born May 18, 1809
Eliza Wade, born Dec. 11, 1811
Josiah Wade, born Dec. 28, 1812
Squire Wade, born May 4, 1814
William Wade, born Aug. 7, 1817
The following entries were written by two or three different hands in various places in the Bible:
Rebecca Jane Wade, Feb. 13, 1846
James William Wade, Jul. 6, 1847
Mary Edna Wade, May 21, 1849
Robert Warren Wade, May 6, 1851

John Berry Wade, Apr. 30, 1842

Elizabeth Wade, Feb. 23, 1841
Obadiah Wade, Oct. 22, 1836
Louisa C. Wade, Apr. 25, 1819
Louisa Wade, Feb. 28, 1870, Aged 50 yrs 9 mo. 3 days
Josiah Wade, Aug. 15, 1840
Mary Edna Wade and William S. Scrogins married Jan. 25, 1866
G. F. Duncan and R. J. Wade was married Apr. 9, 1868
Martha Ellen Wade & W. D. Duncan were united by Thomas Daniel at William Scrogins on this 18th day of Sep. 1877 in presence of James R. Duncan and G. F. Duncan
The birth entry for Martha Ellen Wade was copied erroneously as Mary Ellen in the Harrod transcript, as he later verified.
Ronald Harrod described the Johnson family record as being a very old and fancy paper, not part of the Bible, but in it. He misread the name Jones Johnson as James Johnson and the middle initial of William Logan Johnson as J. but they are given correctly here for clarity:
Jones Johnson, June 22, 1792
Polly Johnson, July 26, 1788
Elizabeth Johnson, Aug. 21, 1815
Sally P. Johnson, Aug. 6, 1817
Louisa C. Johnson, Apr. 25, 1819
Polly Anne Johnson, Apr. 4, 1821
William L. Johnson, Feb. 14, 1823
Robert Warren Johnson, Jul. 25, 1825
Fountain William Johnson, Jul. 15, 1828,.

The Douglas Register is a compilation of the register kept by the Reverend William Douglas of St. James Northam Parish, Goochland County, Virginia from 1750 to 1797.

Jo: Utley & Alice Woodrum a son named John born Jun: 8 1770. Baptized Aug: 12 1770. p.88.
From Notes on John Utley Wade by William Scroggins, page 2: Although the name Wade does not appear in this entry, it undoubtedly pertains to John Utley Wade. 08 June 1770, the birthdate of John Wade, has been attributed to Anderson Wade in certain family records but, since the baptism of Anderson Wade is not included in the records of the Reverend William Doublas, it is not likely that he and John were twins. Anderson must have been born about 1772.

From Notes on John Utley Wade by William Scroggins, pages 2-3:
The Reverend William Douglas came to St. James Northam Parish, Goochland County, on 12 October, 1750. On 15 September 1753 he bagan keeping a record, which he stated was the first record kept for the parish, of marriages that he performed. He obtained a ledger in 1756 that became a permanent register for the parish and was maintained by him until his death in 1798. In 1756 he inserted many of the prior marriages that he had conducted and, at the request of some of the congregation, he also added some birth records going back to 1705. The church for St. James Parish was Dover Church, which was the first church in Goochland County. It was authorized to be constructed on 11 February 1720 at a cost of 54,990 pounds of tobacco. It was to be 50 feet long and 24 feet wide (THE DOUGLAS REGISTER).
Dover Church is on Route 621 about three-quarters of a mile north of the village of Manakin at the intersection of 621 and Route 6, from Richmond to the town of Goochland. Manakin is about thirteen miles from Richmond and twelve miles from Goochland. There is a St. James Church on Route 649, about one-half mile south of Route 6 and two miles east of Manakin (State of Virginia General Highway map).
The register contains no other references to John Utley and Alice Woodrum Wade or to their children although the family apparently resided in Goochland County until about 1788.

Pages 129-134 Indian Fork Baptist Church Cemetery is located 1.9 miles northeast of Bagdad on Ky route 12. The church and cemetery are on the left next to the highway. The Indian Fork Baptist Church was established in 1806. The cemetery occupies about one-half acre on the south side of the building. The grounds are well maintained and most of the markers are in good condition. In an effort to make it easier to mow the area, most of the foot markers appear to have been taken up and the fieldstones which marked some graves have been laid flat on the ground. The rows begin on the south side of the cemetery and the graves in each row are listed starting on the east side. This survey was made on October 15, 1978.
