Daniel Evans

William R. Seabolt and Daniel Evans were riding together from Dennison, Texas into the Choctaw Nation. Near Eufaula, in the Choctaw Nation, Evans killed Seabolt.

Suspicion was aroused when Evans was seen riding Seabolt’s horse. A week later, Seabolt’s body was found.

St. Louis Globe-Democrat, July 15, 1875

Evans was tried and convicted before Judge Parker on June 16, 1875. Sentenced to death, he was executed on September 3, 1875. Five other unrelated men were hanged the same day.
