      Sheriff Edward Stevens succumbed to complications from a gunshot wound sustained four years earlier, in 1881. At the time, Sheriff Stevens was a deputy and was attempting to arrest two horse thieves near Luling, Texas. The posse and the suspects became engaged in a violent gun fight and Sheriff Stevens suffered severe wounds to his left arm. The wounds were so serious that it required the amputation of the arm. An infection set in following the surgery that led to Sheriff Stevens' death.

      Sheriff Stevens was a veteran of the Mexican-American War and of the Confederate Army of the Civil War. He had served in law enforcement for over 25 years with the Bexar County Sheriff's Department, San Antonio Marshal's Office, and Texas Rangers. He was survived by his wife and seven children.

      One of Sheriff Stevens' sons, Federal Prohibition Agent Charles Stevens, was shot and killed in the line of duty on September 25th, 1929.

      Sheriff Stevens is buried in San Antonio City Cemetery I in San Antonio, Texas.

The posse and the suspects became engaged in a violent gun fight; Sheriff Stevens was severely wounded in the left arm during the gunfight.

      Edwards A. Stevens was a veteran of the U.S.-Mexican War and served in 1855 as a member of a company of Texas Rangers. Stevens was first elected Sheriff of Bexar County and served from August 1, 1864, and served until August 11, 1865. Stevens was replaced after the end of the Civil War by an appointee (James Fisk) of provisional Governor H.J. Hamilton. (During Reconstruction, Radical Republicans in Congress pressed for "fairly sweeping disenfranchisement of former Confederates," says the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, edited by Charles Reagan Wilson and William Ferris. Southerners were asked to sign loyalty oaths to the United States to hold even the most minor local government post. In 1866, Stevens served as City Marshal of San Antonio. He later became a Deputy Sheriff for Bexar County and served in that capacity under Sheriff Thomas McCall.

      In 1884, he was elected Sheriff of Bexar County for a 2nd time. Stevens took office on November 4, 1884, and remained as Sheriff until he succumbed to the infection in his left arm on November 7, 1885.

They had 7 children; Virginia, Louise, Adella, Charles, Lizza, Oliver, Charles Stevens and Edward Oliver Stevens. He is buried with his wife at the San Antonio City Cemetery #1 in San Antonio, Texas.
