Townshend Dade married Elizabeth Dade, his cousin, and had a son, Cadawalder. Cadawalder's son, Townshend Dade, married and had a son, Francis Langhorne Dade, born 1791. Francis L. Dade served as a lieutenant in the War of 1812. He and Mary Jackson Dade Conway grew up together. Francis L. Dade died in 1835 while fighting in the Second Seminole War (also known as one of the Florida Wars) in Florida.
