Thank you for visiting the "Spade Family in America" Web Site. The purpose of this site is to provide a place for Spade family members to contact each other for the purpose of sharing our family history and photographs. Please be patient while the photos are loading. We have included a large number of family photos, and it may take some time for them to load and appear on your screen. If you have additional or clearer photographs, please share them with us. We have much more historical information, anecdotes, family legends and more photographs than we are able to display on this web site.
