February 3, 1889, two days before her 41st birthday, she was ambushed while
riding home from a neighbor’s house in Eufaula, Oklahoma. After she fell off her horse, she was shot again to make sure she was
dead. Her death resulted from shotgun wounds to the back and neck and in the
shoulder and face.
