Text: Susanna Wilkerson Dickinson (ca. 1814 – 1883), wife of Almaron Dickinson, killed at the Alamo, survived the battle. General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna gave her a letter dated March 7, 1836 for Sam Houston in Gonzales. Susanna traveled east from San Antonio with her infant child Angelina Elizabeth Dickinson and Joe, Colonel Travis’ servant. At the Cibolo Crossing on the Gonzales Road she encountered Sam Houston’s troops and gave them the news that the Alamo had Fallen.
