    Gender Male 
    History A widower by the 1880 census. Living with his daughter, Amelia, and her husband, John Rands, in the 1900 census, age 86 years. 1900 census states both his parents were born in Pennsylvania.
    Levi Place and brother Charles Place moved from Pennsylvania to Pepin Co., Wisconsin. Levi's daughter, Nancy, who married James Tromblay, and then Eli Place, her first cousin, is said to have composed a long narrative poem before 1934 describing her father's life in Pennsylvania, her mother's death, and the move to Wisconsin with her Uncle Charles' family. Is a copy still in existence someplace today?

    The name of Porcupine got its name from one of the Place boys. There are two similar stories, just which of the brothers named it, Charles or Levi, is unknown. The story says one of them was hunting and caught a huge porcupine. He then nailed the porcupine onto a tree next to the creek. From that time on that area was called Porcupine. Also Hogsback Hill was named in a similar way. The brother thought the hill reminded him of the back of a hog!

    Levi purchased land in Wisconsin: 127.32 acres of Public Lands in Eau Claire County as "North half of the North-west quarter and the South east quarter of the North-west quarter of Section 4 in Township 26 North of Range 6 west of the 4th Principal Meridian in Wisconsin" on 5 Oct 1888 at Eau Claire, Wisconsin (Wisconsin Land Patents, Homestead Certificate #3512, application 5460)

    1840 census - 2 males under 5, 1 male 20-30 (Levi); 1 female 20-30 (Polly).

    Living with daughter Amelia and her husband, John Rands in the 1900 census. He and Harriet have probably split by now, as Harriet is noted to be married to Gottlieb Zank for three years in the 1910 census.
