Notes for JOHN CAVE:
Notes: From the Cave Genealogy Society

Descended from the Cave's of Virginia. Carolyn's ancestry goes back to Henry
Cave born 1769 in Carolina County Virginia, who married Miss Smith. We then
come to the Benjamin Cave who arrived in Va in 1725, and the question of
their origin. Some say England and descended from William Cave of Pickwell,
1637-1713. It is unfortunate that the only recorded children are, Elizabeth
(1663), William (1664-1665), mary (1669), Ann (1671), William (1674) and John
(1676-1677). My records of Benjamin over this period are: Benjamin of Cold
Overton bapt 21Apr1665, son of John (c1638) and Ann; Benjamin of Leicester
bapt 22May1698, son of James and Mary. There may be others, I am sure, but
they have still to be found.

ID: I2824
Name: Richard Cave
Title: (Rev).
Sex: M
Occupation: Baptist minister
Birth: 00 1750 in Virginia
Death: 00 1816 in Kentucky

23-24 [1885].
Note:
RICHARD CAVE was one of the pioneer preachers of central Kentucky,
and was very useful among the early settlers. He was the son of
Captain Benjamin Cave of Orange county, Virginia, where he was born
to far from the year 1750. At an early age, he was led to Christ,
under the preaching of the famous Samuel Harris and James Read, and
united with Upper Spottsylvania church. He was set apart to the
ministry, by this church, while he was quite young. After
preaching a few years in his native county, he followed Lewis
Craig, whose sister he had married, and his brother William Cave,
who had moved the fall before, to the wilderness of Kentucky, in
1782. He settled in Garrard county, where he united with Gilbert's
Creek church. This was the same church he had first joined, but
now, in a new location, and bearing a new name. He remained at
Gilbert's Creek some tow years after Lewis Craig, the old pastor,
had moved away, and, with George Stokes Smith, supplied the church
with the ministry of the word. In the spring of 1785, he moved to
Woodford county, where he went into the constitution of Clear Creek
church. Here he was associated in the ministry with John Taylor,
John Dupuy, James Rucker and, soon afterwards, with John Tanner and
the venerable John Sutton. He was regarded as a man of great
piety, and was very zealous and useful, especially during a great
revival that commenced under his ministry at Clear Creek, in 1800.
The church received 326 by baptism, during one year, and was
increased to 558 members. This was the most useful period of Mr.
Cave's ministry; for not long afterwards, he fell into the pit that
has ineffaceably spotted the garments of multitudes of good men.
He contracted the habit of drinking too freely. When reproved for
this sin, he repented bitterly, and could never again be induced to
taste spirituous liquors. His zeal for the cause of Christ was
undiminished, but his usefulness was much impaired. Not long
before his death, he arose to close the exercise of a meeting he
attended, but was overpowered by a flood of tears and compelled to
sit down. He died of a protracted diarrhea, in July, 1816. A few
days before his departure, he expressed great serenity of soul, and
a patient acquiescence in the divine will. He had been a teacher
of music and was an excellent singer. A little before his last
breath, he sand in a loud voice, the words: --
Note:
"O for an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours;
To triumph o'er the monster death,
And all its frightful powers."

Notes Below: From the Cave Family Genealogy Society's Web Page.

Descended from Benjamin Cave (1703) of Virginia through two sons, William and
Richard. The lines of descent come together through his mother, Sona Cave who
married Murl Anderson. This is achieved over seven generations. Rick is the
centre of information on the Cave's of Virginia. His Web site features in
"Computers and Family History".
