About James "Jim" Tewksbury

James "Jim” Tewksbury- Brother of Edwin Tewksbury, Jim was also involved in the Pleasant Valley War against opposing cowboys. After the Graham's offered a $500 reward for the death of any sheepherder and a $1,000 reward for the deaths of patriarch, John Tewksbury and his son, John, Jr., Jim got actively involved in the feud. The Tewksburys were forced to move their herds from camp to camp and when several cowboys planned to ambush them, Jim killed one of the Hash Knife cowboys. On August 10, 1887, eight cowboys retaliated by storming his home. In the ultimate gunfight, cowboys Hampton Blevins and John Paine were killed, and three others wounded. Though the feud was winding down, Jim did not survive long, as he died of consumption the following year.
