A North Carolinian With Lewis And Clark

We recently had a question about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and whether or not the University Library had any relevent resources. The Library does, but it made me start thinking (of course) about whether or not there was a North Carolina connection. I found at least one…a member of the Corps of Discovery was from North Carolina. Can anyone name this person? Were there others? Are there other North Carolina connections of which our loyal readers know?

— Now this is an irresistible headline:  “Is it true a Cadillac fell off the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge into the river?”?
