Cave, George and his wife Elizabeth emigrated to New England on April 29 1859 with a young baby to establish a new life in North America. He found work as a painter in Stowe where they settled and had a second child. Their lives like so many others changed as a result of the Rebellion. George was mustered into the Vermont 11th Regiment in Nov 1863. His first assignment was in the Defence of Washington. In May 1864 his unit was sent to fSpotsylvania. Like many soldiers he became ill and was sent to a Military Hospital in Washington then to Burlington Vermont which was a short distance from his home and family in Stowe. He went to Stowe in September 1864 to see his wife and family and found that they were gone. the neighbours claimed that Elizabeth had heard that he had died and she moved the family to Montreal. George deserted and went to Montreal to find them. He did locate them in Montreal where they remained for the rest of their lives. George was employed by the Grand Trunk Railway in Montreal and worked as a machinist on the railway. He died in 1900 "after a long and painful illness" which was apparently related to his illness during the Civil War. He was buried in the Mount Royal Cemetery in Montreal.
