Levi Savage, Jr., was born March 23, 1820 in Greenfield, Huron County, Ohio, the eldest son of Levi Savage and Polly Hames. In the early 1840's the family became members of the Mormon faith.They endured all the persecutions prevalent at that time and were with the exiled Saints in Council Bluffs when the call came for the Mormon Battalion. Levi enlisted and made the entire march to California. Upon his discharge he started for home—but where was home? He knew that his parents with their family were on their way west to Utah so he, with other soldiers, journeyed to Salt Lake City. Here he found his father and brothers and sisters, but his mother had died and was buried not far from Council Bluffs.
