Red River County Clarksville Times: On Wednesday NUBBY FOLSOM and JIM WILLIS, two Choctaws, met at the store of WRIGHT & PEROT at Kiometia on Red River in this county. They had long been deadly enemies and a meeting meant fight and a fight to the death. On sight, the battle opened and quite a number of shots were fired by both parties. Willis was shot through the body four times and was borne bleeding and almost lifeless across the river where he expired. Folsom was wounded very seriously but perhaps not mortally. There has been a family feud between the parties for a number of years.
