Captain Almeron Dickinson, originally a blacksmith from Tennessee, was
married to Susanna. They had a 15-month daughter, Angelina. Susanna and
Angelina were among the fourteen survivors (Wood). While the work
of fortifying the Alamo was going on, Almeron found that he worked well
with the artillery, so he was put in charge of the cannons (Lord 77).
During the siege his men shot Santa Anna's headquarters (Lord 129).
Captain Dickinson was one of the last to die (Lord 166).
