Levi Andrew Bowen was born February 3, 1839, the son of William & Mary Smith Bowen, and was the husband of Martha Jane Whistler Bowen, whom he married February 3, 1867, at Shiremanstown, Cumberland County. In 1860, he was a blacksmith presumably living in Fairview Township, York County. He stood 5' 5" tall and had black hair and brown eyes. At his death, he was a resident of Fairview Township.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Harrisburg December 17, 1861, with Co. H, 7th Pa Reserves (36th Pa Inf), at the rank of private. Wounded in the left arm and left side of the chest and captured at battle of White Oak Swamp during the Seven Days Campaign, but soon paroled and eventually returned to active duty. Captured again at the battle of the Wilderness May 5, 1864, and incarcerated at Andersonville. Paroled at N.E. Ferry February 27, 1865, and eventually sent to the hospital in York. Transferred to Co. H, 190th Pa Inf, because the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps no longer existed and honorably discharged July 22, 1865.
