I.P. Address:

My grandfather was John Wade from Clonakilty, Co. Cork (born in 1883 /emigrated to Massachusetts.) In my whole life (here in the USA), I have never met anyone with surname "Wade" who was Irish. (Other than my father's family.) My grandfather was poor and a devout Catholic. He was sent to work as a farm laborer at age 16. So, we are not of the Anglo-Irish ascendency, or it would seem unlikely so. We don't know how we got this name and have each been asking our fathers. My grandfather asked his father who said that his own father was unable to tell him. Does anyone know about Wades from Co. Cork? Anything relevant that you might share would mean so much to me.
