Henchman of Jody Collins in New Orleans[1] in 1879. (December 3, 1835April 14, 1879)[2]


Raised in the bayou country near New Orleans, Jubal grew up large and strong. Not very bright or able to learn a profitable trade, Jubal was always able to get by with his strength. When he was 23, he fell in love with Angelique, fought several men for her hand, and married her in 1853. He was proud of her beauty, and did whatever he could do to provide for her.[2]


In 1879, Jubal was hired by Jody Collins for his strength to aid in his scheme to kidnap and hold Yvette Devereaux for ransom. In April of that year, Jubal and his fellow henchman, Rick, assaulted Henri Devereaux's private footman and severely beat him. The next day, Jubal applied to Devereaux for the footman's job and got it. Two nights later as footman, Jubal and Rick as coachman, abducted Yvette outside Maxime's Restaurant and took her to Collins' hideout in an abandoned wine shop in the French Quarter.[1]


Bret and Bart Maverick witnessed Collins' men abducting and followed them. Jubal helped hold Bret hostage along with Yvette while Bart went out to collect the ransom. Bart returned near midnight with the money and an envelope of black powder. He held his lighted cigar near a short fuse, threatening to set it off if Yvette was not released. Rick made an attempt to flee the room, but Collins shot and killed him. Jubal, seeing his friend killed, made a move to stop Collins, but Collins shot and killed him.[1] Jubal's remains were among the first to be buried in New Orleans' Holt Cemetery.[2]
