Humble Beginnings

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) was born and reared in the small community of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. He quit school after eight years to work on the family farm. Eventually Cayce took up photography as his trade.

Growing up in a Christian-principled home had a positive effect on young Cayce. At an early age he got into the habit of reading his Bible from cover to cover each year.

In addition to being a devout member of the local Disciples of Christ Church, Cayce faithfully taught Sunday School and held to all the basic tenets of orthodox Christianity. He even entertained the thought of becoming a minister, but his lack of education and finances forced him to turn in another direction.
