Do you have any additional information on him such as a DOB, place of birth and or marriages?
I do not have that information. All I have is that he commanded the garrison at Fort Mason in 1812- 1813, oversaw the construction of the fort at Cap au Gris in 1813, and was appointed Brevit Major to command the troops taking supplies and reinforcements to Prairie du Chien in 1814 where he was defeated and wounded in the so called "Battle of Campbell's Island".
