The gate enclosing this small family cemetery is ornamented with several of these metal finials, representing what looks to be a spaniel of some variety. A marker notes that the cemetery was established in 1906 on land given by Confederate veteran James B. Cave and his son Johnny B. Cave. Levy M. Cave placed the marker in 1969 in memory of his wife, Wilma Lentile Cave.

    My name is Betty Reynolds Casey. My mother was Kathleen Cave Reynolds. She was one of the sisters of Milton Cave. I remember seeing Leisa as a baby. I Visitedthe Cave family cemetary last week. I was in Vidalia to visit aunt Louise. She is the oldest of Milton’s sister and the only one still remaining? BI talk to Louise and her daughters Donnell and Geri occasionally. Louise is 91 now and not in good health. In fact she was just moved to the hospital in Savannah

    This family cemetery seems very well cared-for. Do you know if current members of the family still live in the area and maintain it?
