Thank you so much for the references. I feel like I might be onto something. I have a copy from ancestry "The Parish of Aughrim and Kilconnel" page 19 saying John Wesley preached there to add to the info from the Bio for Dr. Rev Samuel Wakefield-a Methodist Minister-son of Thomas son of David-who both came to America-The last sentence in the page previously mentioned page 19, the paragraph for Wakefields says "The last three preachers remembered by the people were Mr. Storey, Mr Walsh, and Mr. Wakefield, all natives of the parish." Kilconnell is the parish I believe and that helps and matches up with maps and census of 1901. Then I found an article on John Wesley Visits Galway at http://places.galwaylibrary.ie/history/chapter4.html in case anyone reading this wants to see it. I will type a paragraph on what refers to Wakefield and Wade families. David Wakefield married Mary Jane Wade.
"At this period Mr. and Mrs. Wade of Fairfield, and Mr. David Wakefield, also a member of the parish, embraced the Gospel, opened their houses to the Methodist preachers, and continued to be good supporters of early Methodism. The descendants of David Wakefield, to the fifth generation at least, identified themselves with the followers of Wesley."
This sounds as though there has been contact with the descendants of David Wakefield. And it sounds like the David Wakefield I have been searching for however at rootschat it was brought to my attention that there was another Wakefield family that descends from a David Wakefield-later period-from the same family estate and listed in the Wakefield Memorial by Homer Wakefield on page 255. So my reserch continues with Freeman's Journal and I thank you so much.
