We first find records of him and his brother Ira, in Limeston Co., TN. on the Elk River in 1820. In 1823 he is found on the Yazoo City, MS. tax records with his brothers Ira and Eli. Next Levi is found on the Madison City, MS. census with his father James Jr. and his brother- in-law William Elliot. In 1834 Levi had a letter in the Attala City, MS. post office. In 1840 he was in Yalobusha Co., MS.

Family tradition says he was a horse trader that traveled around buying and selling horses and he may have been away during the 1850 census.

It is a known fact to my people and the Indians of that region that in 1878 and 1879 the pigeons came in such great numbers they darkened the earth from the sun and by roosting in this area broke many limbs off the trees and bent the young branches so much that they remain drooped to this time."
