(3 obits) LAWRENCE T. DADE's, died 1842, 1843, & 1848

Classification: Death
Surnames: Dade, Taliaferro
August 18, 1840, Alexandria Gazette (VA): DIED. Another Revolutionary Soldier Gone. At Bell Forest, the residence of his step-son, Gen. LAWRENCE T. DADE, in Davies's County, Kentucky, on the 23rd of July, Capt. WILLIAM DADE, late of Orange County, Virginia, aged 80 years.

May 4, 1842, Alexandria Gazette: DIED, on the 25th March, at his residence, near Owensboro', Kentucky, of dropsy in the chest, Gen. LAWRENCE T. DADE, in the 57th year of his age. The deceased was a native of Orange County, Virginia, from whence he emigrated to the West several years ago.

November 25, 1843, Alexandria Gazette (VA), page 3: DIED, suddenly of apoplexy, in King George County, VA, on the 1th instant, Dr. LAWRENCE T. DADE, brother of the gallant Major who perished in Florida. Obituary notices have been brought into such general discredit, that it is not my purpose to attempt a labored eulogy on the deceased, who was indeed above all praise, but when such a man dies in the vigor of life, cut off by an awful dispensation of Providence, and leaving behind him a fond wife, and interesting children, it is useful to the living, to look upon the circumstances attending his death. This estimable gentleman, irreproachable in all the relations of life, after the most harassing attendance upon the suffering victims of his county, which has been visited by a dreadful mortality, was called up to perform the last melancholy office to Mr. Cary S. Mercer, between whom and himself had long existed the firmest and tenderest friendship. How little did he think, while standing mournfully by the grave of his friend, that a few short hours would render another grave necessary for himself! Scarcely had he gone two miles from the place of burial, when he had occasion to call at the house of a neighbor on his way home with his little son, his constant and darling companion. After a short stay, just as he seated himself in his carriage he was observed to check his horse so violently as to throw his down. The doctor then fell forward to the ground and never spoke again - Thus perished within a short period of each other, two men whose kindred souls delighted in all that was amiable, excellent, generous, and brave.

July 3, 1848, Alexandria Gazette (VA): DIED, on the 23rd ult., at his residence, Litchfield, King George Co., VA, LAWRENCE T. DADE, aged 42.

On the 28th of February 1871, at the residence of her son-in-law, R.S. Kincheloe, Esq., near Oak Hill, Fauquier County, MRS. MILDRED J. DADE, widow of the late Dr. LAWRENCE TALIAFERRO DATE of King George County, VA. She bore her sickness, suffering, and poverty to which she had been reduced, with the sweetness of a genuine lady, and the resignation of a true Christian. She had been a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church for 25 years.
