Hi! I am looking for information on Thomas Cave and Elizabeth Medford of South Carolina (Spartangburg County). I have quite a bit of information on them, but want to find Thomas' father and connect some possible relatives (John Cavan, Moses Cavan) who lived in the same county around the same time. Thomas Cave was a veteran of the War of 1812 (I have documentation). He moved his family to Dubois County IN in 1815 or so where he died in 1852. He was married 3 times. I am descended from his third wife, Fannie Davis Cave, and his granddaughter, Julia Ann Cave, who was my grandomother's grandmother. I have photos of Julia and quite a bit on this family's history in Indian.

Can anyone help me out with some additional information on the first marriage in South Carolina? Also, Thomas was supposed to have been born circa 1777 in Virginia. No idea what county or possible parents. This is why I want to make a connection if possible with the Cavans who live in Spartanburg County SC at the same time. I am wondering if they may be related, but made a name change for some reason.

Or they may be no relation.

Thanks for any help.

I would like to learn more about Thomas and Elizabeth, if you are willing to share. Is Elizabeth the daughter of James Medford of Martin County, North Carolina? Was Thomas in the War of 1812? I am descended through their son John and his wife, Sarah Jane Kearby. Thank you.

I honestly do not know about the Medfords. I have tried since age ten to learn more about Thomas Cave St and his third wife, Fannie Davis. But without a lot of success. I will look and see what I can find. Thanks.
