D. McTavish

A native of Stratherick, Scotland, and one of the partners of the North-West Company of Canada. He was upwards of twenty-four years employed in the wilds of Upper Canada, and the interior of the north western regions of America, and was very successful in promoting the business of the company, and in securing the good-will and alliance of the Indian nations, by whose chiefs he was always treated with the greatest respect, and received on the same footing as one of their own number. His enterprising genius led him to project and attempt an expedition across the continent of North America, for the purpose of establishing a connexion with China; and, after having escaped innumerable perils, he and six of his companions were lost near Cape Disappointment near the mouth of the river Columbia, in the Northern Pacific Ocean, on the 22nd May, 1815.
