Private Shannon had gone hunting and became separated from the crew on the river. Two weeks later, they were re-united near here.
Sgt. Gass, September 11, 1804 --We saw some person coming down the river on horseback when we came to land, and found it was the man who had preceded us with the horses [Pvt. Shannon]. He had left one of the horses that had failed ... This man has been absent 16 days, and his bullets being expended, he subsisted 12 days, almost wholly on grapes.
