Jackman, Levi (son of Moses French Jackman, born June 16, 1767) and (Elizabeth Carr, born September 19, 1763) (both of Salisbury, Essex county, Massachusetts) was born July 28, 1797, Corinth, Vermont. His father was killed in an accident just before his birth and his mother died in 1819.
He married a young widow, Angeline Myers Brady, 13 Nov 1817 in Alexander, Genesee, New York, (daughter of Henry Myers and Ruth Rodgers). She died 24 January 1846, Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois. She had a son by the name of Albert Brady who was about 4 years old. Afterward they called him by the Jackman name. In 1830 they moved to Portage, Ohio, where they accepted the message brought to them by Mormon missionaries. They were baptized in May 1831. His wife died shortly after the martyrdom of Joseph and Hyrum Smith in June 1844.

His diary describes the cutting of a road through the mouth of Emigration Canyon and on entering the Valley it "seemed like bursting from the confines of prison walls into the beauties of a world of pleasure and freedom."
