Evan Wade 1840 IOM to Ohio

I've come across an interesting and somewhat mysterious event and that involves Evan Wade who was born 1st August 1840, Ohio, USA and yet was christened 6th September 1840, Patrick, Isle of Man
I cannot see his parents Robert Wade bapt 5th Dec 1826 and Mary Corlett c1811, returning to the Isle of Man for him to be christened and therefore wondered as to how this unusual event occurred? Suggestions?

1860 census
Robert 56farmer IOM
Mary A. 43 (48?) IOM
Ellen 19 IOM
John J. 14 Ohio
Jane 11 Ohio
Eliza A. 9 Ohio
Wm 7 Ohio
Thos J. 6 Ohio
Elmira 4 Ohio
Jas 2 Ohio

Also, what happened to Evan as I have his death being 1907 (I haven't put down my source and therefore don't know where he died) (schoolboy error!)
