Wade was born in West Virginia July 1, 1872. The diaries begin in July 1892 when Wade was living on the family farm in the Wynoochee Valley in Grays Harbor, County. They continue through his life, documenting his days in school, life on the farm, work at mills in Tacoma and Seattle; his and his deaf wife Editha's social life with family and with other deaf people, her employment, and his construction of their home in Tacoma in 1909. The diaries end in January 1912. Wade died in an auto accident on October 25 of that year.
