Cooper Folsom

Obituary of Julius C. Folsom, Atoka, Oklahoma.

Judge Julius C. Folsom, the last survivor of the Choctaws, who went from Mississippi with his people to the Indian Territory, crossed the "silent river" in the happy hunting ground" at his home in Atoka, Okla., December 23, 1914, after a brief illness, at the age of eighty-five years.

Judge Folsom was a remarkable man. He was a leader among his people and a Confederate veteran, having served in the War between the States under Green Cooper, and he personally knew and loved Gen. Stand Watie. He was the Commander of the Judge Julis C. Folsom Camp, No. 1774, U. C. V., at Atoka, named in his honor, bestowed by Standley Posey Chapter, U. D. C. on his suit of Confederate gray at the State reunions. He rests beneath the furled banner on the breast of his beloved Southland till the last roll call.
