Levi Hiram Bement was the fourth-great grandson of John Beaumont (1612-1647), the emigrant ancestor to America.

Levi Hiram Bement, born 8 Oct 1805, at Suffield, Ohio and died 31 Jan 1846/47 (40/41) (another source indicates the date on his tombstone in Lagrange Cemetery to be 31 Dec 1847) at Lagrange, Ohio; married Harriet Parsons (1814-1896) (82) on 2 Dec 1829 at Manchester, Ohio. She died at Bijou Hill, South Dakota. Levi and family removed to Lagrange before 1835 where he farmed the rest of his short life.

In 1850 Harriet and her children resided at Carlisle Township, Lorain County, Ohio. As a resident of Sparta, Michigan, she married (2) Edward Field (b. about 1809) of Chester Township in 1862, and he likely died soon after. She apparently reverted back to the Bement name. In 1870 she resided at Saranac, Michigan with her son Henry. In 1880 she resided at Sparta/Nashville, Michigan with her daughter Almyra and grandson. At age 71, she married (3) Peter Cole, age 81, in 1887, a Grand Ledge, Michigan farmer, born about 1805 in New Jersey, performed by her son Horace H. Bement. Children of Levi Hiram and Harriet (Parsons) Bement were: Horace H. Bement, Henry Parsons Bement, Ellen Minerva Bement, Betsey A. Bement, and Almyra "Myra" G. Bement.
