Bookseller Alexandria Manager of the Alexandria bookstore of Robert Gray (190) in 1815. A fleeting presence in the historical record, Cawte was recorded as being employed by Robert Gray in the city's census for 1815; the only other record yet uncovered of his life is a War of 1812 muster roll, as he served as a Sergeant in the First Regiment of the District of Columbia militia. Despite a rare surname, no other bibliographical or historical information has yet been found concerning him, so making further identification impossible. No Personal Data yet discovered.
