Author Code: EGFA

Born: Jul. 24, 1821 - (?) Oxfordshire, England

Died: Aug. 29, 1848 - St. Louis, Missouri, USA

Educated at the Tunbridge School and at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, although he left the latter before receiving a commission. He went to Spain and became a lancer under Diego de Leon and was awarded the Laureate Cross of Saint Ferdinand from Queen Isabella II for his gallantry at Belascoain. He moved to Canada where he joined the Canadian 89th Regiment of Foot, later giving up his commission to become a hunter in Upper Canada. He returned to England after these escapades only to set sail for Africa, but the trip was unsuccessful. In 1846, he went to Veracruz in Mexico and observed the Mexican-American War. He then travelled through New Mexico to Colorado, where he spent time hunting. He wrote a number of autobiographical works and articles about the West. His works include The African Bushmen (1845), Adventures in Mexico and the Rocky Mountains (1848), Life in the Far West (1851 Posthumous) and In the Old West (1915 Posthumous).
