Reflections for Sheriff Edward Alexander Stevens

I am a fifth generation Texan and the proud great-great granddaughter of Sheriff Edward Alexander Stevens and the great niece of Captain Charles (Chollie) Stevens, two honorable lawmen who gave their lives serving this great state. I worked for the DPS Drivers License Division in San Antonio under Homer Garrison for four years, before I started my family. God rest these brave men and God bless Texas!

Edward Alexander Stevens came to Bastrop, Texas in the 1840's from Harper's Ferry, VA and was orphaned by his mother and father at a young age. He also served proudly in Confedferate Army, but was called back to San Antonio after a short time. Lawlessness was rampant while the men were away defending the honor of the South. He was my great-great-grandfather. His daughter, Maude Cecilia Stevens married Edward Young Cooper of Stockdale, TX. Maude was my grandmother and her son, Edward Young Cooper, Jr was my dad.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 124th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Sheriff Stevens,
On today, the 123rd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served during the U.S.-Mexican War.

DAY IS DONE
GONE THE SUN,
FROM THE HILLS, FROM THE LAKE, FROM THE SKIES.
ALL IS WELL SAFELY REST,
GOD IS NIGH.

GO TO SLEEP, PEACEFUL SLEEP,
MAY THE SOLDIER, OR THE SAILOR, GOD KEEP.
ON THE LAND OR THE DEEP,
SAFE IN SLEEP.

LOVE, GOOD NIGHTM,
MUST THOU GO,
WHEN THE DAY, AND THE NIGHT NEED THEE SO?
ALL IS WELL, SPEEDETH ALL
TO THEIR REST.

FADES THE LIGHT;
AND AFAR
GOETH DAY, AND THE STARS SHINETH BRIGHT,
FARE THEE WELL; DAY IS GONE,
NIGHT IS ON.

THANKS AND PRAISE,
FOR OUR DAYS,
'NEATH THE SUN, 'NEATH THE STARS, 'NEATH THE SKY.
AS WE GO THIS WE KNOW,
GOD IS NIGH.

It is said that EVIL flourishes when good men do nothing.

To the family of this brave officer who gave all so that others might live, I extend my deepest sympathy and gratitude for your continued sacrifice.

To those of us who were left behind who still wear the badge, the mission continues... tomorrow is another Tour Of Duty... May God comfort you with the knowledge that you DO make a differance.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
