HI Michael! Your family name is mostly known in Limerick (Quade)  and Monaghan counties, but also concentrated more around Ulster (N. Ireland) mainly due to the Scots-Irish influence Mc/Mac Qaid, Quade, Quad. You can start researching records online with information that you DO know and build your own profile on facts.  Record repositories are PRONI (public records office Northern Ireland) or the National Library, among many others can be searched online and in person to further explore your heritage.  Also, the Civil War records would be available in the States and a very good resource is Damian Shiels website http://www.irishamericancivilwar.com and his research is ongoing. There is a vast resource of information within the civil war records in America for genealogical research in Ireland and making those elusive connections.  Also, here is an article I recently authored at Ireland Reaching Out project, you could also reach out to other McQaid's there and to the community here. http://www.irelandxo.com/ireland-xo/news/planning-tips-research-trips  Happy Hunting!!

You will find that in the context of Irish historical records there are many spelling variations of the same name. From the 17th century Gaelic surnames of Irish and Scottish origin were translated, and in many cases mistranslated, into English;others were changed to similar-sounding English names. 

Check out McQuade family crest at  https://www.houseofnames.com/mcquade-family-crest 

Also do surname search at  www.irishtimes.com/ancestor  to explore the location, frequency and history of this Irish surname.
