Birth: Jun. 21, 1833
Death: Apr. 14, 1895

Co.A,7th Va.Inf.Regt.

Wed to Mollie Bouton Cave. They lived at "Eagle House",Madison County. It was called that because the newspaper,"The Madison County Eagle" was once housed in the basement.Originally a tavern, this house was constructed in the latter part of the 1700's and was known as the Washington Tavern and Carpenter's Tavern. After 1877, the house became a private residence and still serves that function.

William Cave was the Treasurer of Madison County for 25 years.


From the Journal of the Congress of the Confederate States of America:

War Department, Confederate States of America,

I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant,

JAMES A. SEDDON,
Secretary of War.

To His Excellency Jefferson Davis,
President, etc.

The reply:

Cave, of Virginia, to be first lieutenant and aid-de-camp in the Provisional Army of the Confederate States of America, reported, with the recommendation that said nomination be confirmed.
