According to the Asheville News, NC, October 2, 1862:
“A horrible affray took place in this town on last night, between J.C.
Neal and John Isbell, which resulted in slightly wounding J.C. Neal in
the head with a pistol ball, and in killing John Isbell dead on the spot,
by shooting him through the heart.  We forbear comment till further
particulars are given. – from the Marion Enterprise newspaper”
