Levi Rector was the first child born to Revolutionary War soldier Jesse Rector and his second wife, Margaret (Winford) Adams Rector.

His full-blood siblings were Rhoda Rector (1806-1821), Alexander Rector (1808-1843), Rebecca Rector (1811-?), Isaac Rector (23 April 1816-1899), Chloe Rector (1818-1847), and Jonathan Rector (1821-?).

Levi's mother Margret was the daughter of Alexander & Margret Winford, and the widow of Isaac Adams. Levi had a half-brother by his mother's first marriage, however, being quite young, the brother is thought have assumed the Rector surname and is included in the list of children of Jesse's first marriage.

Susanna died in Malvern, Mills Co., IA; Elizabeth Rector Parker(1795-died in Malvern, Mills Co., IA); Jonathan Rector (1796-1809); and Joseph Rector (1798-1891).

Levi's father Jesse Rector was a Revolutionary War soldier with the Virginia Militia, having fought at the Battle of Yorktown. (Jesse was born & raised in Germantown, Fauquier Co., VA. He died 22 Jan 1843 in Lawrence Co., IN).

Levi, along with his father & mother, and all siblings living at the time except for his older half-brother Samuel Rector, moved in 1821 from Grayson Co., VA to Lawrence Co., IN. Over time, family members eventually relocated.

Levi's mother Margaret (Winford) Adams/Rector died in Lawrence Co., In on 16 April 1852.
