Samuel Jones Levick was a leading cause for the abolition of slavery, a compassionate voice for the protection of animals, a faithful proponent of his personal faith (i.e., the Society of Friends, or Quakers), as well as a faithful preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Arriving in this world in 1825 and departing in 1886, he spent most of his life as a citizen of Philadelphia and Bucks County.

Samuel J. Levick is the name to which is given the street that connects from Philadelphia's Tacony-Palmyra Bridge to New Jersey across the Delaware River. He is my great, great grandfather. He's my hero.
