    Notes 
    • It is believed that Amos lived in Dixon, Carroll Co., IL after 1850.  he had many land grants there, and his son Homer's residence was Dixon at the time of his enrollment in the Union Army.

      He is likely the Amos Steadman who was Constable of Russian River, Sonoma Co., CA in 1860:

      Amos C. Stedman, Dixon, Lee Co. IL

      Dixon's first elected mayor under its city charter which went into effect in 1859, was Amos C. Stedman. Mr. Stedman went into office April 6, 1859, after results from a mayoralty election earlier in the year had been thrown out.

      He succeeded Acting Mayor Joseph Crawford, who served until a second election was held, resulting in Stedman's election.

      Mr. Stedman guided the city of Dixon through two years under the new charter, serving as mayor also in 1860. He was a member of the board of trustees under the old town charter for 1855.
