Birth:  ca. 1750, Orange Co., VA
Death:  10 Jul 1816, Woodford Co., KY

I doubt Richard's birthdate.  His mother would have been 52 years old.  Either that or his mother's birthdate is wrong.

Without knowning any of the birthdates of any of the children, it's impossible to make use of the census data, other than to confirm that an older Richard Cave family was in Woodford Co.
