Wiki says "Daniel Stevens Dickinson (September 11, 1800-April 12, 1866) was a New York politician, most notable as a United States Senator from 1844-1851. He was elected New York State Attorney General in November 1861. He was appointed United States Commissioner for the final settlement of the Hudson Bay & Puget Sound agricultural claims in 1864. Dickinson was considered as a possible vice presidential candidate when Abraham Lincoln ran for reelection in 1864, but the nomination went to Andrew Johnson. Dickinson supported Lincoln's reelection, and was appointed US Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 1865, an office in which he served until his death. He died in New York City, and was buried at the Spring Forest Cemetery in Binghamton."

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook.
