What leads me to Gaines, Orleans Co. NY?....The birth record of Daniel Levi Hale in 1841 says he was born in Orleans, NY.... I find no other Levi Hale's (b.1890) in New York the exact age except one living in Orleans Co.NY (circumstantial evidence, but very coincidental)

Vermont birth record 7450115 Levi Hale b. 18 Feb 1790 at Windsor Twp., Windsor, Vermont, father: David Hale, mother: Olive
the only problem with this fitting as our Levi Hale,..is the information found that this Levi listed in the Census data above, married Anner Durkee Feb 11, 1817. Their children were all from Gaines, Orleans, NY but our Levi b.abt 1814 was at least 3 years too old to fit this family.... unless he was a child of a previous marriage.

1825 Land Patent obtained from the US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management shows..., Levi Hale of Delaware County, New York, purchase at the land office at Monroe, Michigan. Legal Description: The North west 1/4 and West 1/2 of the North-East 1/4 of Section 4 of Township 4 South in Range 5 East in the southern District of Michigan Territory, Containing two hundred and forty seven acres and one hundredth of an acre. (247.01acres) One interesting thing about this land is the description as "Michigan Territory" meaning wild land before Michigan was a "State", which occurred Jan. 26., 1837, thus making Levi Hale an early Michigan pre-State era Pioneer. This original land document was signed by the 6th President of the United States "John Quincy Adams".
