Not sure there is a Moshulatubbe connection, maybe Mingo Pushcus?
From: Who Was Who Among The Southern Indians, Don Martini
Folsom, Nathaniel -Choctaw trader, was born in Rowan Co., NC, May 17, 1756,
the son of Israel Folsom. His father, a native of MA or CT, was met by Creek
agent David Tate on the Ogeechee River in GA on 3/31/1772. Israel was then
en route to MS with his wife and six children (1). He first settled among the
Chickasaws but later moved southward. He and a son, Ebenezer, were listed on
the 1781 Tombigbee census. Israel died on Cole's Creek in southern MS IN
1784. In addition to Nathaniel and Ebenezer, he left children named Edmond,
Israel (died at age 18), Sarah, and Abigail (2). Nathaniel apparently began
trading with the Choctaws in the early 1780's and eventually married two
Choctaw girls, nieces of Mingo Puscus. He was among the Indians by 1787 (3).
One wife Iahnecha, gave him children named Nathaniel, Molly, George, Samuel,
John, Robert, and William. The other wife, Ainechihoye, was the mother of
David, Rebecca, Rhoda, Israel, Adam, Issac, Jeremiah, McKee, Edmond, Emily,
Amziah, Lucretia, Elizabeth, Solomon, Delilah, Shame, and Polly (4).

near Robinson Rd in Moshulatubbe's District. He moved west with his sons
David and Israel, and died at Mountain Fork. I.T., Oct. 9, 1833 (5).

Academy in the Choctaw nation, wrote in 1854 that "the Half- Breeds are the
Aristocracy -- they rule the Nation -- posess the wealth of the land -- and
own the slaves. They are few compared to the fullbloods. The chief families
among them are the Folsoms, the Pitchlynns, the Harkins, the LeFlores, the
Garlands, and the Pickens. Of these, the Folsom family is by far the most
numerous. They are scattered all over the nation and they are related by
marriage to all other "half-breed families" (Box 12, Indian Correspondence,
