Private Joseph Whitehouse

Drawing of Joseph Whitehouse.

Sketch copyright by Michael Haynes.

P.S. I kept a journal of most of the journey, the only known diarist who was a private. Living in Missouri in 1807, I was arrested for debt. I rejoined the army, served in the War of 1812, and deserted in 1817. No further information is known about me.
