BIOGRAPHY: "Edward Stebbins, early in the spring of 1676, was taken captive by the Indians at Longmeadow, while he was with Samuel Bliss, his brother-in-law; and was carried to the falls above Deerfield. With a youth named Gilbert, he made his escape from the Indians and gave information of their place of residence , whereupon the English made an attack on them, destroying three hundred or more of them" (New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 38, p. 158). In addition to his other town duties, Edward was chosen Selectman in 1700, 1702, 1703, 1707, and 1709. From all of these records, it's clear that Edward Stebbins was a prominent man in Springfield during his lifetime.
