Thank you Gail for the information regarding the history of a Mr. Charles McDade, born 1784. Sorry that it has taken me so long to respond, I have been quite busy. My grandfather, Elijah McDade moved with my grandmother, Pearl Harrison McDade and eldest daughter, Arline McDade Watson to Indianapolis in 1921, having lived in Kentucky and other Midwest states, due to racial relations in Alabama during the early 1900's, and also because my grandfather found steady employment and a city he welcomed. Gail, the only new info I have to add is that my grandfather's mother's name was Pasty. Hopefully when I get the book you suggested, I might find some info to further my search.
