I have a copy of paper written in 1834 by Thomas J. Cave of French Lick, Indiana. He says Thomas Cave b. 1773 who settled in Dubois County, Indiana was his grandfather. The 6 page typewritten paper entitled "HISTORY OF THE CAVE FAMILY", says 1773 Thomas lived in South Carolina and was in the War of 1812 before moving first to KY and then to IN. The paper goes on to give considerable info on Thomas's descendants.
Are you familiar with this paper and/or the author?
