Dade Connections: Louisa Jane / Janie DADE WASHINGTON

On May 8th 2010,  I came across someone who was searching for
Jane WASHINGTON lineage.

I checked the Missouri Death Records.
Here was what I found.
And I saw...
Another Frances OVINGTON DADE Connection. 

      According to her death record,
Louisa Jane Washington died on April 21, 1910.
She was born in March of 1817. I think Louisa Janes's birth year was an error.
After some searching on Louisa Jane, I came up with 5 different birth years.

I searched the MO census records...Jane was born
According to the Census...
1870 born in 1842
1880 born in 1836
1900 born in 1841
1910 born in 1816
and on the death record
In 1910 born in 1817.

      I checked the Missouri 1910 census records. On that 1910 census, there was a Jane Washington listed with J. Washington, a black male in Dickerson, Lewis, Missouri. Most likely this Jane(listed born 1816) could be the right Jane Washington.

 On the 1910 census, Jane's son was born 1868. He could have been John Washington born in 1858. There was a 10 year age difference. Jane's age on the 1910 census record was 94..  (Also, I noticed that the census was taken 15 days before Louisa Jane died.)

     So, the year of Louisa birth can be accepted... about Mar 1826 in Kentucky. I have searched for Louisa Jane's parents. Her mother, Frances / Frankie OVINGTON Dade was born about 1812 in KY. There were other birth years for Frances; Dec 1799, and 1810. Louisa Jane's father Isaac DADE was born about 1808 in  VA.

     Louisa Jane DADE married David Washington.

David Washington
abt 1828 - Mar 19, 1897

According to the 1900 MO census,

Additional Information on

On the 1870 Missouri Census in Lewis County,
there was a household listing a David and Jane Washington.
There was a child named Ellen LOVE, mulatto born in about 1859 in MO.
There were 3 other children.
Those children were listed as black.
Fannie Washington
Born about 1863 in MO
Believed to have been a child of David and Jane Washington

Jane Washington
Born about 1865 in MO
Believed to have been a child of  David and Jane Washington

George Washington

This list is a total of 10 children of David and Jane Washington.

There was a Francis Washington who died on June 8, 1884
She was buried near David, William and Benjamin in MO.
Perhaps Francis was related.
So that would make it 2 children... unaccounted for.

Ellen HENDRED's Death Record...
According to an Eddie Hendred.
Ellen's father's surname was an unknown LOVE.
Ellens' Mother, Janie DADE

Note: According to William Manley, husband of Luella Hendred's death record, Ellen Hendred was born in Monticello, Missouri.. Wonder if Eddie Hendred could have been George Edward Hendred? Edward Hendred married an Rhena Roberson on Dec 3, 1903 in MO.

Hope this information was helpful. Especial to the descendants of Louisa Jane / Janie DADE WASHINGTON. May we all continue to search for our family lineage. May we continue to add something to the family tree.

I'm connected on the Charlotta DADE LANKFORD Branch. The LANKFORD Connections. Louisa Jane was one of  Charlotta's sisters. Charlotta was my  Great Grandmother on my mother's father's side.

  1. Wow this is amazing. I think I am linked to this family...Through Durwood Hendred...I just noticed he was married to a Cotten Corner...My Grandmother is Mildred Cotten who was Mildred Corner at the time my dad Durwood was born in 1945.

  2. Dana, I'm so glad that you found my website. If you are related to Durwood, that makes us cousins. (I came across a marriage record of Durwood Hendred who married a Corner Cotten. Perhaps her name was Mildred...I'm not for sure. I don't know much about the Hendred lineage. However, there are a lot of Hendreds though. )

  3. Wow how May I get a copy of that record.nn I just noticed you have a Twitter Account, I am going to inbox you there...I am getting excited, for so long we have wondered about that side of the family..
