DICKINSON, Rodolphus, clergyman, born in Deerfield, Massachusetts, in 1787; died there in 1863. He was graduated at Yale in 1805, studied law in Northampton, was admitted to the bar in 1808, and practiced his profession in Springfield, Massachusetts, till 1811, acting as clerk of the courts in his native County for eight years. On leaving this office he was ordained deacon by Bishop Griswold, of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and removed to South Carolina, where he founded the parishes of Greenville and Pendleton. During the first eighteen months he traveled more than 7,000 miles on horseback. He was advanced to the priesthood in 182.2, and returned the following year to Deerfield, which residence he retained till the close of his life. For six years he preached at Montague, Massachusetts, after which, in 1839, he was an unsuccessful candidate for Congress. He published his own translation of the New Testament, with notes (Boston, 1833), and several law, geographical, and other Textbooks, including a "Geographica[and Statistical View of Massachusetts Proper."
