DANIEL E. SHADE was born in 1857 near Tremont, Schuylkill Co., Pa., and received his education in the public schools.  For nineteen years after he began to earn his own living he was engaged at the mines, being employed at the Cameron colliery.  He then embarked in the mercantile business, for many years occupying the location at Third and Spruce streets where his brother-in-law, Emanuel Long, is now doing business, and in connection with his lines of general merchandise he dealt in oils.  This specialty in time attained such proportions and offered such good prospects that he gave up his original business and devoted himself exclusively to the oil trade, which he has ever since continued.  He is manager of what is known as the Merchants Oil Company, with offices in the Market Street National Bank building, Shamokin, and handles a large wholesale business which has not yet by any means reached the limit of expansion.  His partners in this concern are Martin and Charles Jameson, of Warren, Pa., and these two young men are associated with W.B. Stewart as proprietors of the Warren Refining Company, of Warren, Pa., which furnishes the product disposed of by the Merchants Oil Company.  Mr. Shade has developed the business by the exercise of ability and good judgment, which he possesses to an unusual degree, and his success has placed him among the most enterprising men of Shamokin.  His personal and social standing is equally good.  He is a prominent member of the Masonic fraternity, holding membership in Shamokin Lodge, No. 255, F. & A.M.; in
Shamokin Chapter, No. 264, R.A.M., of which he is a past high priest; in Shamokin Commandery, No. 77, K.T., of which he is a past eminent commander; in Williamsport Lodge of Perfection (fourteenth degree); Williamsport Consistory (thirty-second degree); and in Rajah Temple, A.A.O.N.M.S., of Reading, Pa.  He is a Republican in politics and has held the office of school director, serving from the Sixth ward.  He is a member of the Reformed Church.

"Mr. Shade married Sept. 20, 1876, Frances Ross, daughter of Thomas and Anna (Kerrey) Ross, of Jersey Shore, Pa., and six children have been born to this union: Minnie married Claude Morgan and they live in Pittsburg; Gertrude married Ray Kellerman and they live in Mount Carmel; Edith is bookkeeper for her father; George is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy; Mabel and Frances are at home.
