The details of this killing can be read in my recent book WYATT EARP IN YAMANASHI in a chapter called "George Walker Pound." Lewis was killed by two brothers named Henry and Bob Thompson. The details are drawn from the 1937 WPA series called "Oklahoma and Indian Territory, Indian and Pioneer Historical Collection." The book is available on Amazon.
