Edward, he younger son of Edward Colston, was only sixteen years old when the late war commenced, but in spite of his youth he enlisted in 1862, in the Second Virginia Cavalry, and served with marked gallantry until he lost his left arm at Appomattox, just three days before the surrender of Gen. Lee. He was left in the field hospital, captured by the Federal troops, and taken to Elmira prison, where he was held until some months after the cessation of hostilities. After the war he studied law under his uncle, Judge J. W. Brockenbrough, who was professor of that branch in Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va., where he graduated with distinction, and in 1870 went to Cincinnati, Ohio, to practice his profession, where he soon attracted the attention of the leading lawyers of the Cincinnati bar, and is now engaged in an extensive and lucrative practice in that city, as a member of the firm of Harman, Colston, Goldsmith, Hoadley & Co. In 1875 he married his cousin, Miss Sally Stevenson, of Covington, Ky., a daughter of ex-Gov. John W. Stevenson.
