Levi Page was born in May 1843 in WI to Hiram (born in NY) and Sally Jane (born in Ireland). His siblings were Horrace (1836), George (1840), Charles (1846), and Philp (1850).

Page joined the WI 15th Infantry, Company C. The men of the company called themselves the “Norway Bear Hunters,” but they were also known as the Color Company because the regimental Color Guard was attached to their company. His brother, George, also served in the WI 15th.

The army listed him as living in Waterford, WI, age 20, and unmarried. He enlisted for three years on November 4, 1861 at Waterford, and mustered at Madison, WI on December 2, 1861 as a Private (Menig). He was assigned as a wagoner with the division supply transport on June 20, 1863 and also on July 1, 1863. Page was assigned to the quartermaster department between those two dates. He mustered out with Company C on January 1, 1865 at Chattanooga, TN.

After the war, he married Mary M. Merrills in 1875. They had two children: Clyde Oliver and Claude Obediah. By 1900, they lived in Kearney Ward 1, Buffalo County, NE. He and his wife were both buried in Kearney Cemetery, Kearney, Buffalo County, NE.
