I don't see a Levi English in Terry's Rangers but there was a James English in Company G.
A search for "Levi English" brought up the following:
Captain Levi English of the Texas Rangers was the apparent leader of a group of settlers who came to Dimmit County in 1865 and founded Carrizo Springs. Captain English and his family donated the land for the first church in Carrizo Springs, the First Baptist Church which was founded in 1878. In 1966 the building was designated a Texas Historical Landmark and can be found today as it was then on the corner of Houston and 7th streets. It can be seen from Highway 277.
I hope this helps.
