G.W. Stevens; McCord's 46th Frontier Cavalry

Jeff Elliott,
.
Two questions about your George W. Stevens (18311893):
.
*************************************
.
1a) Do you have family records that point out that he was "active in resisting Indian attacks on pioneers"?
.
1b) When was he a sheriff? ..deputy sheriff?

1c) I am interested in any narrative you may have about your George W. Stephens' life during the Civil War era.
.
Quoting:
" ... He was an honored Texas Ranger, and served as sheriff of Wise County. A short biography of him goes as follows: Capt. George Stevens ... Came to Wise County in 1855. ..Well known as champion of the defenseless. ..Active in resisting Indian attacks on pioneers. ..Member and guiding officer in numerous home guard units. ..Served as sheriff in 1860s, 1870s. ..."
