I am looking for ancestors and descendants of Samuel Cave b:abt 1811 and James Cave b:abt 1812, sons of Holsea Cave b:abt 1776 and Mary Titchener m:early 1800's. Holsea and sons were from Berkshire, England and arrived in NY abt 1832. Holsea had 3 brothers, Thomas b: 1780, William b: 1782, Frederick b: 1789, and one sister,m Susannah b: 1784. All were born in Westminister, Saint Martin in the Fields. I don't know if Holsea's siblings remained in England or emigrated to America.

After arriving in America abt 1832, Samuel met and married Emaline A STURDEVANT May 6, 1834. She was of the CONNECTICUT/VERMONT/MAINE STURDEVANTS (Sturdivant).

I do not have any info on James/descendants.

Samuel & Emaline's son, James William Cave b:3-31-1838, married Alice Europa EDMUNDS b:7-2-1849 on 9-22-1868 in Floyd Co., Iowa. Alice was from the SCOTLAND/NY/MICH/IOWA Edmunds.

Their son Wayne Centennial Cave b:7-14-1876 married Harriet Loretta SEWELL b:12-1-1873 on 10-5-1898 in Horton, Iowa. Harriet decended from the VIRGINIA SEWELLS.

I am looking for links (ancestors & decendants)to the following Names: CAVE.....STURDEVANT....EDMUNDS....SEWELL.

Hopefully this marks the beginning of locating many new relatives....some distant and some not so distant. If any of the above families are of interest to you please contact me. Thanks for any help you might provide.
