4) NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):
The book Genealogies and Family History of the State of Connecticut edited by William R. Cutter provides some information on this family on page 2125:
"(VI) Simon (3), son of Simon (2) Wade, was born November 22, 1767. He married, before 1790, Phebe Horton, born May 7, 1772, and lived at Foster. Children: James, born December 10, 1791; Catharine October 12, 1793: Sarah, October 23, 1798; Arnold, June 26, 1800; Olive, September 23, 1802; Miranda, June 25, 1804; Fenner, March 30, 1807; Lawton, mentioned below."
According to the Connecticut Men book, Simon Wade married Phebe Horton, probably in about 1790. They had at least eight children between 1791 and 1810, all probably born in Foster, Rhode Island.
In the will of Nathaniel Horton (1730-1819) of Foster, Rhode Island, written 8 February 1814, and proved 19 June 1819, his daughter Phebe Wade is mentioned:
""Item. I Give and Bequeath to my Daughter Phebe Wade Wife of Simon Wade Twenty Dollars to be paid to her out of my Real Estate by my said sons Abel & John as aforesaid."
After Nathaniel Horton died on 9 May 1819, the distribution of his estate on 20 September 1820 to Phebe Wade included:
""No 1. Drawn to Phebe Wade one flock bed beding bed stead and Cord $4.83"
Phebe (Horton) Wade was probably the female over age 45 enumerated in the Simon Wade family in the 1820 U.S. Census, residing in Glocester, Rhode Island.
There are no census records for either Simon Wade or Phebe Wade in the 1830 or 1840 U.S. Census records. Perhaps she is enumerated in the 50 to 59 age group in the 1830 census in another family group.
It is probable that she died between 1820 and 1840 in Foster or Glocester, Rhode Island.
There is no known gravesite for Phebe (Horton) Wade.
