Wade's Beginnings

In 1847, while Jeptha H. Wade was residing in Milan, Ohio, he acquired his first job in the telegraph industry. This was just beginning. Wade started buying companies and laying lines as fast as he could. He was also the inventor of the Wade Insulator and the first submarine cable in iron armor.
