Canadian artist, Cornelius David Krieghoff was born on 19 June 1815 in Amsterdam, son of a German expatriate father and Belgian mother.  In the early 1830's, it is believed he may have studied art at the Dusseldorf Academy.  In 1836, he emigrated to the United States and enlisted in the American army, fighting against the Seminole Indians of Florida.

In New York, he met a young French-Canadian woman, Emile Gautier, whom he married.  He was discharged in 1840 on rumo (showing 500 of 2745 characters).
