attended the rendezvous of 1826 in Cache Valley, the close of which
appears to mark the end of Weber's own fur trade adventures. There is
no clue as to why he left the mountains; however, it is possible that
he left because of his age or because his friend, Andrew Henry, had
already left the mountains the previous year. For whatever reason, John
H. Weber definitely left the mountains by 1827 and spent his remaining
years in the Midwest. He died in 1859.
