James Livesay, born November 7, 1811; died aged about thirty-seven years.

George and James are residents of Lanawee Co., Mich., whither they removed with their father in 1835.

Joseph Livesay spent his youth and early manhood upon his father's farm. April 28, 1831, he embarked for himself, without capital, but with
willing hands and a firm resolve to make himself a home. He took farms in the neighborhood, which he worked upon shares. His first
purchase of land was 62 acres, in June 1835 of the Goble heirs, in the town of Big Flats. October 29 of the same year he married Sally Bennet,
the eldest daughter of the late Comfort Bennett.
She was born October 20 1814. They commenced housekeeping April 10, 1836, and have maintained the fireside and roof-tree through the
forty-two intervening years.

The record of the sons and five daughters is as follows:
George W. born July 25 1839
Ellen born June 1 1841
Clarinda born June 16 1843 - 1858
Morris B. Born August 22 1846
Sally born June 29 1849
Belle born November 24 1853
Kate S. born June 101860

George and Morris died when quite young, and Clarinda at the age of fifteen years.
Ellen Married (October 18 1860) David D. Reynolds, of Horseheads.
Belle married Mr. G.E. Reed of Elmira July 12 1876
Sally, unmarried and am invalid, and ate, the youngest , are both living at home with their parents.

Mr. Livesay made his residence in Big Flats from 1836 to 1870, when he removed to Horseheads, where he cultivates a small farm in the
suburbs of the village; The remainder of his acreage, embracing about 760 acres in Big Flats and 240 acres in the town of Elmira - near the
Water-Cure on the east hill, - being operated by tenants.

Mr. Livesay is one of the very few remaining early residents of this valley, and has been identified with its interests, its growth and prosperity,
for nearly a half-century. He was born in what is now know as the town of Big Flats, and his whole life has been passed in this vicinity.
Although never a politician or office-seeker, he has held various town offices; he was a school trustee for thirty-one years, path-master for
thirty-two years in Big Flats, and a member of the board of trustee of the village of Horseheads.
He was one of the original charter members of the old Chemung County Agricultural Society, and one of the prime movers in the institution of
its fairs. He always took an active interest in everything pertaining to agriculture, particularly in the improvement in stock, and introduced the
first thoroughbred bull into his town. In the religious faith he is a Universalist, and in politics a Democrat. He is still hale and hearty, and is
enjoying a comfortable competence, as well as the respect and esteem of the community where he lives.
