Details of his life and work beyond that have proven difficult to find. Other sources indicate that a Rev. Robert F. Caverlee worked outside of Appalachia, as an Instructor in Biblical Literature at the State Teachers College in Fredericksburg, Virginia (now the University of Mary Washington) and pastor of Fairmont Baptist Church in Richmond (1917-21) and Fredericksburg Baptist Church (1932-61). It is likely, but not 100% certain, that they are the same person.
Caverlee User Guide
Robert H. Ellison
The User Guide for the Library of Appalachian Preaching is a Google Sheet that can be searched, sorted, and downloaded for offline use.
At the moment, Caverlee has only one sermon in the Library; it has a Guide of its own so the records will be complete. It includes the title, sermon text, date and place the sermon was preached, and so on. This information is available in the master list of sermons as well.

Robert F. Caverlee
