Notes:

Levi Young was a cooper. I think He wood gather loads of staves and get them ready to sell to the mills. (Making Wooden Pails, Tubs, and Barrels). He was most likely born Trois Riveres Quebec, Canada. Every time when married with Susan Reyome, he would fill out the census saying he father was from France, his Mother was from Canada, and he was born in Canada.
Than when he was living with Elizabeth, he would fill out the census his Father from France, Mother from Canada, but than he started saying he was born in Maine.
Susan Reyome had moved back with the youngest child Frederick, she would fill out the census that Frederick's father (Levi) was from Canada.
All that was known Levi had 6 children with Susan and 13 children with Elizabeth. Susan's youngest with Levi "Frederick Young" would be my Great Grandfather from my mother's side of the family. Than one of the daughter's of Levi and Elizabeth "Edna Young" would be my Great Grand Mother on my father's side. So somehow I come across much information. Than he also had one more child. So twenty children all together?
I find many little different spellings and some different information in every census. Back then, most of the people didn't read or write. Than also being French, maybe many of them spoke very little English or none? So it probably depended on who was giving the information and also the translations? It was after when Levi was living with Elizabeth, all the census started saying he was born in Maine. But all the info I have looked at so far, I'm sure he was born Trois Riveres Quebec, Canada.
1836 27, October Levi born in Trois Riveres Quebec, Canada. (Death certificate says Cazy NY, but most likely he was born in Canada).

1861 17, March Sarah is born.
1863 22, March Levi Young Jr. is born.
1865 14, April Mulvina A. Young is born.
1868 17, February Phoebe Young is born.
1869 Levi and Susan move to Bay City MI
  At some time/date? a blind peddler at stopped by Bay City MI. 
1871 15, January Rose (Rosina) Young is born.
1872 30, May Frederick Young is born.
1873 5, February Susan returns to Bangor NY with Fred. Fred almost 1 year old.
Susan had 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I believe she went to live with her mother in Bangor NY. From all other information, she had a least one sister still in Bay City Michigan?, also her 5 other children and Levi.
There is about 4 years when Susan Left and his first child with Elizabeth. Was e-mailed by someone who had information on Levi had another child with one of Susan's sister's? Checked it out and the daughter would be Delia Reyome. That would have been 3 years after Susan left.  I had found it in the census her living with Susan in Bangor NY. So she must have been born 1874 to 1875? 1875 census has her 7 months. She would be the daughter of Felinda Reyome? in the notes only had of Delia Reyome: that Married a man named Lauber. They had a son & daughter. Marian; married Tom Perry (their daughter Eileen Perry). Have more information: Felinda is really "Celinda" and she is the one who had the daughter Delia Reyome/Young. And Susan had an older sister "Philinda Reyome" who married "Israel Disotell" The 1880 census just more misspelling.
The 1875 New York State Census, Bangor, Franklin County, p. 32 line 292 lists the following:

1875 1, April Levi and Elizabeth are residing in Gouverneur.
1876 9, March George O. Young is born.
1878 16, September Edna Young is born.
The 1880 Census has her first name spelled Addied Young. This would be Delia Reyome in the 1875 New York State Census, Bangor, Franklin County Census. Also using her last name Young. All of Leviís censes he said he was born in Maine. All the censes Susan said Levi was born NY. Delia most of been the daughter of Felinda. Her name is spelled different ways, Felinda / Silinda, I think the correct spelling is Celinda Reyome
