Not my family line, just sharing.

"LEVI ROLLINGS was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, October 29, 1842, and is the second of the four children born to WILLIAM and MELINDA (STANLEY) ROLLINGS, natives respectively of Baltimore, Maryland, and Wayne County, Indiana. WILLIAM ROLLINGS was brought to Tippecanoe County when a mere lad, was there reared on a farm, was there married, and there died June 23, 1855. The following year the family came to this township and settled on 133 acres of wild land which had been entered by the grandfather of LEVI ROLLINGS. The latter was employed at home until August 11, 1862, when he enlisted in the Tenth Indiana Battery, and served until mustered out July 11, 1865, at Indianapolis. He fought at Stone River, Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge, after which last-named battle he was assigned to the Eighteenth Indiana Battery, in which he took part in all the battles of the Georgia and Atlanta campaigns. For four years after the war, he farmed on shares in Iroquois County, Illinois, and then moved to St. Joseph County, Indiana, where he was employed running an engine, threshing and sawing wood for about three years, and then returned to Tippecanoe County, where again he farmed on shares until the spring of 1882, when he came to this township and engaged in farming. December 11, 1869, he married ANNA M. SANDERS, a native of London, England. MR. ROLLINGS is a Republican, and both he and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
