About Ebenezer Israel Folsom

http://www.folsomfamily.org/harry/choctaw%20folsoms/d1.htm

From: Elizabeth Knowles Folsom, Genealogy of the Folsom Family - Vol. II, (Folsom Family Association of America, Inc.-1938

Gateway Press, Inc, Baltimore, 1975), p. 810:

He went with his father and family to Mississippi; lived in the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations with his parents; visited his brother Nathaniel in the Choctaw Nation, at one time remaining two years. It is supposed that it was during this time that he took an Indian wife, Ni-ti-ka. By her he had one daughter, and it is said he left this wife and child in the Nation, and "moved into the west." He is later claimed to have been the first white man to visit the Hot Springs, in Arkansas. About 1800 he lived in Clark County, Hot Springs Township, and had married Mary (???), who was born in Arkansas.
