Deputy Marshal Lincoln Keeney was shot and killed in Fairland, Oklahoma, by a man he had arrested several days earlier. The suspect had escaped from custody and searched out Deputy Marshal Keeney. When he located the marshal he shot him in the head and then fled the state. The man was arrested the following year in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Mr. Keeney, whose full name was Asa Lincoln Keeney, was a blacksmith serving as a deputy when he was shot to death in 1894 by an escaped prisoner who he had captured.

Although many records indicate this happened in Fairland, Indian Territory, I think this is a mistake and it happened in Miami, I.T., where his blacksmith shop was.

I would like to know more about him so that he his not forgotten here in Miami.
