Levi Hasbrouck, born in 1791, was the only son of Josiah Hasbrouck (1755-1821) and Sarah Decker (1764-1845). After Josiah's death in 1821, Levi inherited Locust Lawn. That same year Levi married Hylah Bevier (1795 -1874). Levi and Hylah had six children together, although only five of them survived adulthood. Under Levi's tenancy, Locust Lawn continued to thrive as a successful, up-to-date farming operation and the Hasbrouck home was a comfortable one. Levi was a member of the Washington National Monument Society, American Tract Society and American Bible Society. Levi Hasbrouck died on March 7, 1861, of a long unknown illness. Upon Levi's death his only son Josiah inherited the family farm Locust Lawn and much of his father's real estate in New Paltz and environs. Note paper has a thin black border.
