Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) reports "three smoking locations on Unimak" and Shishaldin "erupting with fire" in 1836. This eruption is not found in subsequent compilations (other than Sapper, 1917), although other compilations list a 1838 eruption for Shishaldin that is not listed in Grewingk.
