Livingston D. Howell, son of Leonard D. and Elizabeth A. (Wells) Howell, was born in Bethany, February 28, 1853.
His father, a farmer and quarryman, came to Le Roy in 1854. About 1873 he opened the quarry now operated by L.
D., and shipped stone quite extensively, at times as many as 30 car loads per week. In 1862 he enlisted in Co.
B. 100th N. Y. Vols., as sergeant, participating in all the battles with his regiment. He was with Gen. Butler
on the peninsula, received two wounds, and was made lieutenant, when he resigned. He creditably filled several
town offices, was successful in all business transactions, and died in 1888, aged 60 years. He was a son of John
M., an early settler of York, and the father of eight children, and whose father came from New Jersey. Livingston
D. Howell was reared on the farm, received a common and academic education, and assisted his father in his business.
He married Elizabeth, daughter of Jerome and Fannie (Howell) Wheelock, of Cuylerville, N. Y., and their children
are Fannie B. (deceased) and William L.
