    Notes 
    • The town of McDade, Texas is named for him though he didn't live there.  He resided to the East in the town of Hempstead, Texas, a town he co-founded with Dr. Richard R. Peebles.  He was the first sheriff of Washington county, Texas, elected July 13, 1846 and served as the captain of the Hempstead Guard during the Civil War.  He served as a representative in the Texas Legislature in 1851 and in the Texas Senate from 1853 - 1855 and was president of the Washington County Railroad in 1862.
          Texas Handbook Online notes:
          HEMPSTEAD, TEXAS. Hempstead, the county seat of Waller County . . . .. Dr. Richard Rodgers Peebles and James W. McDade, founders of Hempstead, organized the Hempstead Town Company on December 29, 1856, to sell lots in the new town at the terminus of the projected Houston and Texas Central Railway. . . . . Violent settlement of disputes, often fueled by political and social disagreements involving the Ku Klux Klan, Radical Republicans, Greenbackers, Populists, and prohibitionists (see GREENBACK PARTY, PEOPLE'S PARTY, and PROHIBITION), brought Hempstead the nickname "Six-Shooter Junction" . . . .
