Caverno, Arthur

Caverno, Arthur a Free-will Baptist minister, was born at Barrington, N. H., April 6, 1801. He is said to have been of Scotch-Irish descent, his ancestors of the same name having come to America in 1735. He was converted at seventeen, at nineteen was licensed, and in 1823 was ordained. For a year or two he taught school and preached. A church having been gathered in Epsom, N.H., in 1824 he was chosen pastor, and remained there until 1827, and then accepted a call to Contoocook village, in Hopkinton. In 1830 a remarkable revival of religion was enjoyed by his Church, as the result of which it more than doubled its membership. From 1833 to 1836 he was pastor at Great Falls; from 1836 to 1838 financial agent for Strafford Academy; and in 1838 and 1839 pastor of the Roger Williams Church in Providence, R. I. His other pastorates were in Charlestown, Mass.; Bangor, Me.; Calidia, N. H., Dover; Biddeford, Me., Gardiner, South Parsonsfield, and First Church, N. Berwick; and last, a second time, in Candia. His last residence was in Dover, N. H., where he died, July 15,1876. He wrote for the Morning Star from its commencement to the close of his life, and from 1834, for several years was one of its editors. He published several Sermons, and left a full journal of his life and ministry. See Morning Star, Aug. 23,1876. (J.C.S.)
