Sequoyah (SP-426)—a motorboat built in 1907 by Crockett, Pocomoke City, Md.—was chartered on 24 August 1917 from Albert T. Lavallette of Hampton Va.; and commissioned on the same day.

Sequoyah was used for transporting ammunition and supplies in Norfolk harbor in World War I. She was known as SP-426 for much of her career. Sequoyah was decommissioned and returned to her owner on 29 January 1919.
