Our Genealogy Helper for Jack Wade ...

So far, we have found very little information about Jack Wade. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Jack Wade to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Jack Wade, please Contact Us.


We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Jack Wade (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Jack Wade. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Jack Wade, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Jack Wade) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Jack Wade. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Jack Wade
