Birth: unknown
Death: Apr. 19, 1889
Fort Smith
Sebastian County
Arkansas, USA

Malachi Allen and James Mills were executed by the federal court at Fort Smith on April 19, 1889. Both of these men were found guilty of murder in jury trials held before Judge Isaac C. Parker. On July 15, 1888, Malachi Allen shot and killed Shadrach Peters and Cy Love during an argument over a saddle. When deputy U.S. marshals tried to arrest Allen for the murders, he resisted until wounded. Allen's arm, badly shattered in the shootout, had to be amputated before he was taken to Fort Smith. James Mills was guilty of murdering John Windham in the Seminole Nation on December 15, 1887. No motive for his crime is known.
