Levi S. Tyler was the son of William Tyler and Ann Bennett. He married Catharine Thomas on 14 Feb 1856. They had four children.
He served in the Confederate Army as Private in Company C, 2nd SC Artillery, Captain Medicus Rickenbaker's Company.
While home on furlough during the latter part of the war, Levi Silvester became ill. In spite of his illness, when his furlough was about to expire, he persisted on returning to his post of duty, near Charleston, South Carolina. Catherine received a letter telling her that Levi was extremely ill and that she should come quickly by train. By the time she got the letter, Levi was dead.
