Ben Wade
Ben Wade died at his home in Jefferson, Ohio, on last Friday morning. He was born at Feeding Hills parish, West Springfield, Massachusetts, on the 27th day of October 1800, and was therefore in the seventy-eighth year of his age. His father, James Wade, was a soldier in the war of the revolution. His mother was the daughter of a Presbyterian clergyman, and a woman of great force of character and strength of mind. In 1818 Benjamin Franklin Wade concluded that the east was a poor place for a young man and determined to seek his fortune in the west. After revolving the proposition in his mind for two years, he fixed upon Chicago, then a small village, as the place for his future residence. With seven dollars in his pocket, a pack upon his back, in which were his clothes, and a stout stick, young Wade set out on foot to walk from Massachusetts to Illinois, by way of New York. During the year 1821 and 1822, young Wade chopped wood, rolled logs and grubbed in the summer time, teaching school in the winter. In the fall of 1823 a drover employed him to assist in driving cattle, and Wade led a steer in front of the heard all the way from Ohio to New York. Wade walked six times from Ohio to New York while in this business. In 1825, Mr. Wade, having crossed the mountains with a drove of cattle in the fall, stopped near Albany, New York, and taught school that winter. In the spring he hired as a laborer on the Erie Canal, and worked with a wheelbarrow and spade all that summer. On returning to Ohio in the fall, he resumed school teaching, and in the spring of 1826 began studying law. This was the stepping-stone to his political career, and he rose rapidly to distinction. He was highly popular with his constituents, and familiarly known as "Bluff Ben Wade." The bible was his favorite book, and he used to go to sleep poring over the sacred scriptures; but he was one of the hardest swearers in the Buckeye state. He was a United States senator for Ohio for eighteen years, four years a state senator, and several years a state judge. He was president of the United States senate pending the impeachment trial of Andrew Jolmson, and had the latter been impeached, Wade would have succeeded to the presidency. Ex-vice president Colfax was a son-in-law of Wade. The funeral took place on Tuesday.
