Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. His true last name was Stephens. He served as a Quartermaster in the Union Navy. His citation reads "On board the USS Canonicus during attacks on Fort Fisher, 13 January 1865. As the Canonicus moved into position at 700 yards from shore, the enemy troops soon obtained her range and opened with heavy artillery fire, subjecting her to several hits and near misses until late in the afternoon when the heavy ships coming into line drove them into their bombproofs. Twice during the battle, in which his ship sustained 36 hits, the flag ws shot away and gallantly replaced by Stevens." (bio by: Don Morfe)
