"Joseph was very small of stature. It is said on one occasion he hid in a
cabbage patch from a party of Indians. When they discovered him they were
so much impressed with his diminutive size they called him "Mr. Nobody" and
told him they would not hurt him, and for him to keep his gun and hunt
wherever he pleased."
