John Dickinson was the son of Nathaniel Dickinson and Anna _____ Gull Dickinson and the husband of Frances Foote. John Dickinson served as a Sergeant under Capt. William Turner in King Philip's War. Dickinson was killed by Indians during the retreat in Turner's Falls Fight (Battle of Peskeompskut). A memorial plaque near Nash's Mill, Greenfield Twp, Franklin Co, MA, commemmorates the event as follows:
"Captain William Turner of Boston a soldier in King Philip's War was mortally wounded while crossing the Pukcommeacon (Green) River and fell on the west bank May 19, 1676 on the retreat after the 'Falls Fight' at Peskeompskut (Turner's Falls) Forty men of his command fell that day Captain Samuel Holyoke with the survivors fought their way back to Hatfield." John Dickinson does not have an individual grave marker.
The manager of this memorial is a descendant of John Dickinson.
