Western Frontiersman. A fur trader and merchant, he grew up in St. Charles, Missouri. He left Missouri in 1822 to become a trapper, after becoming a partner of Robert Campbell in the Rocky Mountain Fur Trading Company. He helped open the Oregon Trail by using wagons in the Rocky Mountains and by finding a shortcut, now known as "Sublette's Cut."
