Only secondary sources for my family so far in PA. They are well documented in IA where they went by wagon in 1865. Below is all I know of their life in PA except for census records.
"In The History of Cass County pub. 1884 p 629
Hugh Livingston deceased) was born in Lawrence co, PA Oct 21 1821. he was reared to the occupation of farming, which he always followed. He was united in marriage, Feb 21 1843 with Mary ann Todd in the town of Mercer, Mercer Co PA. She is a daughter of John and Gettis (Elder) Todd, who settled in Lawrence county, when she was about twelve years of age. They died in that county. Mr and Mrs Livingston resided in PA till the fall of 1865, when they removed to Clinton Co (IA)?.  They there engaged in farming, remaining in that county five years. In September, 1870, they became residents of Cass co, locating upon a farm of four hundred and twenty acres. lying in sections 3 and 4 of Cass township, and 33 and 34 of Washington township.
