Levi Shroyer was born on January 15th, 1844, in Ohio, the son of Philip Shroyer and Salinda Fiddler.

He served during the American Civil War and enlisted for three years service, being mustered into service as a Private in Company E of the 25th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment on February 29th, 1864, at the age of 20. He was wounded in action on December 6th, 1864, at Gregory's Landing, South Carolina, and was later discharged on account of his wounds.

He moved to Columbia, South Carolina, sometime in 1865 or 1866, and was engaged in buisness pursuits for a short time. He went to the west coast with his brother for a time but becoming disatisfied with things out west he returned to Columbia and worked as a farmer near the city.

On April 6th, 1891, he was admitted to membership as a charter member of the Charles Devens Jr. Post No. 10, Department of Georgia & South Carolina, Grand Army of the Republic in Columbia, being one of the last members of that post at the time of his death.

Levi Shroyer died on September 19th, 1919, at his home in the Edgewood section of the city of Columbia, South Carolina, from the effects of a stroke suffered two weeks prior.
