Deputy Sequoyah Houstan was shot and killed in Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma) while riding with a posse to arrest members of an outlaw gang.

One of the suspects was shot and wounded and a second was later hung for the murder of Guard Lawrence Keating of the United States Marshals Service. Guard Keating was murdered on July 26, 1895, during an escape attempt from Fort Smith Prison in Arkansas.

Deputy Houstan was survived by his wife and two children, and is buried in Blue Springs Cemetery, Gideon, Cherokee County, Oklahoma.
