Thank you so much for your response to my message.
I'm relieved to say that this Hiram Wade doesn't fit the age and location of the Hiram Wade that I am looking for, since my Hiram would only have been 6 or 7 years old at the time of this occurrence and lived in another part of New York.
I am searching for Hiram Wade (1862-1938) - he was born in Easton, Washington County, New York, and he died in Argyle, New York. He was the son of Erastus Rensselaer Wade and Elizabeth Walker Wade Smith.
Thank you again for your reply. I appreciate your time and research!
