I find, besides the reports made at the time by S. D. Howe, George Moore, Captain Rowland, and subsequently by Charles E. Weed, an account by the latter among my manuscripts, under the title of Weed’s Charlotte Island Expedition, from all of which I have drawn the chief facts. Weed was 27 years of age, a native of Connecticut, and had just come to Olympia by way of the Willamette from California.
George A. Paige, a native of New Hampshire, had served in the Mexican war, and had been but a short time in Oregon. He remained on the Sound, serving in the Indian wars, and receiving an appointment as Indian agent at Port Madison. He died at Fort Colville in 1868.
