From HISTORY OF KENTUCKY BAPTISTS, by J. H. Spencer, Vol. 2.,
23-24 . 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: --
"O for an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours;
To triumph o'er the monster death,
And all its frightful powers."

"Would always have a big 4th of July party, up on the home
place, just past the McQueen family cementary. A little brick
house stands there now, but was a bigger wood frame house
before. The area was called either Possum Hollow or Pea Ridge.
Old pictures exists in Henderson fmly of Murdock, in a muddy
field, adjacent to his still. He was only 5'5. Must have come
