George Anton Schaffer, in the service of the Russian-American Company was sent from Alaska to recover the cargo of the Company ship Bering which was shipwrecked on the island of Kauai.

He moved on to Oahu and later reinforced by Russian ships from Alaska and California sailed to Kauai ruled by Kamehameha's rival Kaumualii.
