Not available online
TitleThe Bean-Sinclair Party of Rocky Mountain Trappers, 1830-32
AbstractHistorical article about trapping explorations of the early 1830s, following developments in the early 1800s by the Chouteaus and Osage Indians, among others, starting in and around Fort Smith, Arkansas. The Bean-Sinclair party, ultimately financially unsuccessful, occurred in 1830. It was led by Robert Bean, who left Fort Smith after adverising in the Little Rock Gazette for help and encountered problems with Comanches. Alexander Sinclair as a member of the party also went in 1831 and met Kit Carson's band in 1832 at a rendezvous. Sinclair was killed at the Battle of Pierre's Hole, which was written about by Washington Irving. Other expeditions mentioned are Gantt and Blackwell in 1831 and Bonneville and Wyeth in 1832.
