Private, U.S. Army
In the Return Party, Perhaps
From Massachusetts, White had joined the army in 1801. He was serving at Fort Kaskaskia in Capt. Amos Stoddard's artillery when he enlisted in the Lewis and Clark Expedition. He was designated for the return party, and is a candidate--along with Isaac Tuttle and John Robinson--for the unnamed man sent back with Chouteau traders on June 12, 1804.1
