Birth: 1814
Oregon, USA
Death: Nov., 1914
Hood River County
Oregon, USA

Native American who resided in the area of Hood River, Oregon. It is thought that he was 100 years old at the time of his death, but some white people thought he was younger.

It is known that at the time of his death his wife was Martha. However, he had had an earlier wife, probably much earlier, as he had two little girls who were buried on Memoloose Island initially.

Joe was well known on the streets of Hood River and those who knew him said that he was a hard worker and a most honest man. He for a number of years was the only mail carrier between Hood River and White Salmon on the Washington side of the Columbia. He did his mail route via boat and in winter if there was ice formed too badly for him to get a boat through he was known to hump from ice block to ice block, as true to form he wished to fulfill his job.

How many children Joe actually had is not known for certain. He did have the two daughters. He and Martha had three children, George, Virginia and Fred, that are known.
