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.
