Almeron Dickinson
Birth: 1800
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1836
San Antonio
Bexar County
Texas, USA

Alamo Defender. He served as an artilleryman in the United States Army and later became a Mason in the area of Bolivar, Tennessee. On May 24, 1829, he eloped with Susanna Wilkerson, moved to Gonzales, Texas, in 1831 and had a daughter. As a colonist in Green DeWitt's colony, he received a league of land on the San Marcos River. He participated in the battle of Gonzales on October 2, 1835, which began the Texas Revolution. At the siege of Bexar he distinguished himself as a Lieutenant of artillery and was promoted to Captain. In the Alamo garrison he was the Captain in charge of artillery. On the morning of March 6, 1836, as the troops of General Antonio López de Santa Anna stormed the mission, he ran to his wife, reported that all was lost, and expressed hope that she could save herself and the child. Although he died at the Alamo, his wife and child survived and General Santa Anna had them escorted from the Alamo mission. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

Lay down your arms, close your ranks, Rest in eternal peace. Rest easy, sleep well, my brothers. Know the line has held, your job is done, rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up the line where you fell; the line has held. Peace, peace and farewell."
