"WALTER DICKSON was the son of WALTER and ANNA (TUFTS) DICKSON, and was born March 15, 1799, at Groton. His father removed to this town from Menotomy, since West Cambridge, and now Arlington. WALTER, the son, was a farmer until October, 1853, when he left Groton to work as an independent missionary in Palestine. In January, 1858, Mr. DICKSON'S house at Jaffa was attacked by Arabs, and he himself severely wounded ; his son-in-law, STEINBECK, was killed at the same time. He came back to this country in the following September."
