Stories about William H Wade

Biographical Sketch

    Private William H. Wade was born ca. 1838 at Lawrence County, Alabama.

    He enlisted April 5th, 1861 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida in Captain Gee’s Company (Company G, 1st Florida Infantry) for a period of 12 months, and was discharged on March 9th, 1862 at Warrington, Florida[1] “by reason of inability to perform military duty.”  He was described as 36 years old, 5 feet tall, dark complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, and by occupation a farmer.

    He reenlisted[2] in Captain Davidson’s Company on March 12th, 1862 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida.  He was present with the company when it left the state, but took ill on August 13th at Knoxville, Tennessee and was sent to a convalescent camp on August 31st.

    He was reported being absent without leave at Chattanooga, Tennessee from November 12th, 1862 through March 9th, 1863.  He had returned to the company by March 12th, but was back in the hospital at Chattanooga on July 2nd.  He returned to the company on July 9th, 1863 and was present with it until February 21st, 1864 when he was admitted to a hospital under Surgeon’s order.

    There is no recorded date of his return to the company; however, he is reported to be present with it when it surrendered at Durham Station, North Carolina on April 26, 1865.  He was paroled at Greensboro, North Carolina on May 1st, 1865.

    William applied for and was awarded a Florida Confederate Pension.

    The date and place of his death are unknown, as is the place of interment.

    [1] Warrington is 6 miles west of Pensacola; Company G (old) 1st Florida Infantry was stationed at Camp Magnolia, which was north of the east-end of Grande Lagoon and west of Fort Barrancas.

    [2] His “inability to perform military duty” would appear to have experienced a remarkable reversal in the three days between his discharge and reenlistment.
