His mother is given as Margaret in the following source, making Elizabeth his stepmother:

From Wellington County Methodists 1825-1925 - Early Members at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~methodists/pilkington.htm

PATMORE Levi Wesley Levi Margaret born 1856-06-07 baptised 1856-07-13 died 1872 Pilkington Silvester, Rev. Charles Bethany Methodist

The death date of 1872 is probably a mixup with the death date of his father (1872).

There is a photograph in the collection of William H. Wallace (passed down through Lorna Wallace Johnson) in which Levi Wesley Patmore appears to be around 30 years old, in a portrait with his wife, Minn, and daughter Maud (born 1890). He would have been only 16 years old in 1872!

If he is the "Wesley Patmore" recorded as one of the original 12 settlers who immigrated from Drayton, Ontario, Canada to the present location of Drayton, North Dakota., the following history is relevant:

From the "History of Drayton, ND" (http://draytonnd.com/living-in-drayton/history-of-drayton-nd/):
In late March 1878 a group of individuals met in Drayton, Ontario, Canada, for the purpose of planning their migration to the newly explored lands of the province of Manitoba. The decision was made to leave Drayton on April 10. The original party consisted of J. Walter Fawcett, his wife and child, Ezra Healy, his wife and child, Albert Wallace, Wesley Patmore, James Healy, Harry Wallace, and George W. Healy. This small group was joined enroute by Alexander McCrea, and they traveled by rail to a point 12 miles east of Grand Forks, ND. They had their baggage shipped to Fisher's Landing (then the northermost end of the railway), from which they traveled on foot and wagon through the Red River Valley to Pembina, ND. Impressed with the area, they decided to stay, and A. W. McCrea, as eldest man in the company was given the right to choose the spot for a new settlement. He chose the present location of Drayton, which was eventurally named for the settlers' Canadian hometown.
Within weeks of the first settlers' arrival, at least three cabins had been erected, and prairie was broken to begin farming on each of the claims selected by members of the little colony. The population was augmented by the arrival of other individuals attracted by letters from their settler friends, including Henry Healy, Frank Wallace, Rev. Almon Healy and his wife, A. W. McCrea's family, William Mills, Frank Healy, Robert Tweedlie, Nathan Upham, James Bellamy, T. U. Henry,l Ambrose Smith, Joseph Smith and his son D. K. Smith, R. B. Richardson, Isaac Mussel, and Charles, Frank, and Richard Edwards and their mother. 5 6
