Does anyone know how Ignatius Cade and James C. Cade are related?
The sudden interest in Ignatius Cade is because a researcher saw that Ignatius was born in Columbus County, North Carolina from his civil war record, which seems to suggest another child of Washington Cade we didn't know about.
This is a short summary on Washington Cade son of John Cade and Elizabeth Adair.
Washington Cade married Alice Flowers daughter of Ignatius Flowers and Susan Gray.
Washington lived in Robeson North Carolina which is next to Columbus, he moved to Columbus County in 1809 and lived in Columbus until the fall of 1814, then moved back to Robeson county.note Washington WAS THE ONLY CADE IN COLUMBUS OR ROBESON. Washington's father had died and his brother Robert had sold his land and moved to Williamsburg, SC and brother Stephen sold his land and is thought to have moved to Mississippi.
Washington is in the 1810 census of Columbus County (note the 1810 census for Columbus county only lists the first letter of the head of house with NO info on the head of house)for the ENTIRE COUNTY reason unknown!
1810 census 1 male 0-10 3 females 0-10 1 female 26-45
this would be children John H Cade, Susan, Agnes and Belinda also wife Alice.
When Alice died ( June 14, 1819) Washington gave the children to other families to raise.( note passed down) He then married Barbara Little (there was no children from this marriage)Washington died 1832 .
There is a little about Washington's Estate on Family Search Robeson County ( doesn't list heirs)this seems to just be a court case of the administrator of Washington's estate suing Washington's widow Barbara over the slaves. John H. is mentioned: Joseph C Lee v John H Cade (Joseph C Lee was married to John's first Cousin)
Any help piecing this together would be appreciated.
