About Lieut. Ezra Stevens, Sr.

Ezra Stevens was an officer of a Danbury company in the Revolutionary War. His son Eli was a private in the same company. He is mentioned in this connection in the History of Fairfield County, pp. 193, 194.

When he was an old man, over 80, having been quite ill, a pious friend of his, Deacon Amos Hoyt,) called on him, and in course of conversation, asked old Mr. Stevens if he had made his peace with God. "Made my peace with God?" said the old man, "No; why he and I have always been at peace. There has never been any difficulty between him and me." So Deacon Hoyt's exhortation was cut short.
