Joseph was a gold miner when gold was discovered there in 1838 and worked numerous gold mines in the area. He served in the Confederate Army 1st Georgia Volunteer Infantry (Ramsey) 821 Georgia Militia 'Home Guard' for Lumpkin Co., Ga. with his son Whitfield A. Wade. In 1869 he moved with his family by ox-drawn wagon train down through Mobile, Alabama and by ferry across the gulf and up the Mississippi River connecting to the Caddo Lake and finally arriving in Jefferson, Texas. From there to Upshur County, Texas where they lived in Old Calloway. His family moved to Kaufman Co., Tx. following his death but most returned to Rosewood, Upshur Co., Texas soon thereafter until their death. Joseph Berry Wade's personal papers were donated by his great-great grandson, Ronald Ellis Wade, to the East Texas Research Center at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Tx. -- for information go to:
