Husband of Mary Dewey. In 1817 Levi Dewey, son of Aaron Dewey & Sarah Noble, accompanied by his wife and sons Justin and Stillman left Norwich Bridge, Hunington, Mass. for Meadville, Crawford County, PA. They made the journey with a covered wagon pulled by a team of oxen.

They bought a farm of over 100 acres about 4 1/2 miles east of Meadville at what became known as Mead Corners (now Wayland), named for Gen. Mead of Meadville. Lived in a log house just east of the one and two story slate roof frame dwelling now owned and occupied by Raymond and Lina Theuret.

Levi Dewey served as a deacon of the Meadville Baptist Church, was considered a marvel of business integrity, irreproachable in character, and appears as a private on payroll of Captain Hazelkiah Russel's 2nd Co. September 27, 1784. Served June 15-17, 1782 against insurgents at Northampton, Mass. by order of Elisha Porter, sheriff.
--Adapted from "Through the Years Down the Wayland Valley From the Foot of Hogue Hill to the Ewing Cemetery; 1813 to July 4, 1955." Research by W.A. Clemons.

Levi Dewey & Mary Scott, both of Norwich, MA filed their marriage intentions on March 5, 1792 (Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988).

"The use of the initial 'D.' at the beginning of Levi's name is likely because of his status as a Deacon in the church. None of the many histories of the Dewey family show the D."- info per Randy Hoover, 4th Great Grandson.
