OK who am I?

I am one of 24 people to fly to the moon
I was the 17th American in Space
I was the 4th American to walk in space
and finally I was the 1st person to perform more than one spacewalk
Oops just noticed typo in the original question (now corrected) 17th not 7th if that helps

Seven Mercury astronauts, ten Gemini ones, is 17, so it must be the last Gemini astronaut, but wtihout Googling I don't know who that was...

No, two astronauts on Gemini, bollox, so 7 Mercury, 20 Gemini.

So how can the answer be the 17th American in space when both the 16th and 17th where in the same capsule? Some twicers?
