Sue,

It may have been a Jeremiah Wade that was referenced in some DAR book that I have not yet positively identified that included Revolutionary War burials. I visited the Morriss plantation, "Edloe Glades", a year ago and found a marker for an old fieldstone grave that said "J.W.". Nobody else in the Morriss cemetery had a last name that started with a W so I am inclined to think this may be Jeremiah Wade, son of Pearce who had died in Amherst by the early 1770's.

The names Morriss and Wade do not reveal much but a James Farrar that stood surety for Nancy Daniel Wade's marriage to George Morriss offers a clue. This Farrar was from Goochland County, where lots of Wades, Morrisses, and Farrars lived throughout the 18th Century.

I believe that Nancy Daniel Wade was either a Daniel that married Jeremiah Wade (or another, unknown Wade) or was a single parent, though I have not been able to identify any potential father for her.
