Jincie Folsom Goforth
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 8, 1850
Death: Mar. 11, 1877

From the book "LeFlore County, Oklahoma Cemeteries Volume 10 The Pocola Area"

Jincie was the daughter of Choctaw preacher Willis Folsom.

Her sister Serena Folsom married Franklin Pierce Hickman, also buried in this cemetery.

Note: This cemetery, "Folsom", is located in the city limits of Pocola, Ok. In 1980, there were 23 visible readable gravestones documented by the contributor, Milton A. Stephens. There has been added, an additional 42 names that do not belong to the burials in the Pocola "Folsom" cemetery.

After checking names, some of those listed here are interred in the "James-Folsom" cemetery located 2.5 miles east of Whitesboro, Oklahoma. As you travel east of Whitesboro on Hwy. 63, there is a highway cemetery sign that will let you know to turn left (north), and the cemetery is visible behind a burned-out brick home, with two other structures, one a vacant log house, almost obstructing a view of the cemetery.

In 2004, officials of the Choctaw Nation attended a Memorial ceremony at this cemetery (James-Folsom) honoring a World War One Choctaw Code Talker with a new Military headstone. Among those attending the ceremony were Choctaw Chief Gregory Pyle and a United States Army General.
