No. 1OA Wade Hampton
Harrell (1879-1965)

MY FONDEST MEMORIES

The best memories I have of Dad are that he was always there when we needed him and he always helped everyone. He was a strong, but a kind and gentle man who was blessed with many friends. He was practically a father to me. He was always there. Our father was gone much of the time because he worked for the railroad.

By Grandson Henry Hampton Harrell

Wade Hampton Harrell was the tenth child of Joseph Colley and Nancy Holloway Harrell. He was born on June 27, 1879, at Brooker, Bradford County, Florida. He married Annie Dukes. She was born in 1882 in Union County, Florida. They lived on the Harrell family home place and continued farming as his parents before him. They attended New Hope Primitive Baptist Church.

Wade died on Sept. 25, 1965. After his death, Annie lived with her son Cephus and his family until her death in 1968. They are buried at New Hope Cemetery. Their grandson, Charles Baxter, spends some of his time living on the home place. He says that it is so peaceful there.
