Still trying to verify Jerome Samuel is from Westfield Mass and that his given name is Samuel Jerome. 2 books of his I have in my possession suggest he went by Jerome Samuel, as he signed the books in that manner.

Company I
Edgar Stevens - Private   
Edgar Stevens was my great-great grandfather, and I do not know much about him. He served in the 51st Mass. Infantry, Company F, in 1862-63 and in the 61st, Company I, in 1865. I own a small percussion derringer-style handgun, rather similar to the one used to shoot President Lincoln, that Edgar carried while in the service. A dealer once told me that the Army often did not issue firearms to the soldiers; they brought their own with them, and these small handguns were commonly sold for $2 each in railroad stations. Edgar must have been proud of his Civil War service as he named his son Winfield Scott Stevens. My mom almost named me Scott Winfield Stevens in his honor, but a relative told her that 'Winnie' was a jerk, so she went a different route.
