About Dickinson Gorsuch, III

Seriously wounded at Christiana, Dickinson Gorsuch (1826-1882) returned to Maryland after a long convalescence in Pennsylvania and took over management of the family farm. The family's remaining slaves, one of whom enlisted in the 19th Regiment of the U.S. Colored Volunteers, fled during the Civil War.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dickinson Gorsuch III (1826-1882), son of Edward Gorsuch, the Maryland slave owner who was killed at Christiana in Pennsylvania in 1851. Dickinson Gorsuch traveled with his father and a small slave-catching party and was seriously wounded during the confrontation. Nursed back to health by the Pownall family, local Christiana residents, Dickinson Gorsuch went on to inherit his father's property. His remaining slaves, however, joined the Union Army during the Civil War. Gorsuch died at the age of 56, the same age his father had been when he was killed at Christiana.
