Captain Sire worked at the first saw mill established west of the Mississippi River. Later Joseph became associated with Pierre Chouteau and John Sarpy of the American Fur Company, for whom he would work for the remainder of his life. Captain Sire was in charge of the annual expeditions to the headwaters of the Missouri River for six years. On one such trip aboard the steamer Omega, he had John James Audubon as a passenger. Walt Whitman would write of this particular expedition in The Mountain Trip.
