Dr. Elijah White, described by Howes as a "fervent Presbyterian missionary and political propagandist," ventured to Oregon in 1842 and returned in 1845. Mintz notes that White's party "started from Independence in May of 1842, in company with Medorem Crawford with L.W. Hastings joining them later. Allen speaks of obtaining Thomas Fitzpatrick as guide at Ft. Laramie to take them to Ft. Hall."
