Issue(s): Daredevil #215
The Kid and the Apache follow the map but are unable to locate the deed.
One hundred years later, Matt Murdock has a dream about the incident, and when he goes into the office, he finds that Foggy has set them up with a white client who needs help defending his rights to the land, which the modern Apaches are claiming. Matt travels to Arizona to investigate, and winds up helping out the Apaches instead of his client (and dressing up as Daredevil to fend off thugs, secret identity be damned). Daredevil and a grandson of the original brother wind up in a situation that directly parallels Two-Gun's adventure...
...but Daredevil is able to find the deed.
It's a decent single issue. A bit of a let down after the big Micah Synn epic. And there's no real attempt at pondering the ethical dilemma of a lawyer working against his client's interest, or the economic consequences of Murdock essentially blowing a case (it's shown that after Foggy admitted to the press that he'd been lying about the Synn affair, the law firm has been having trouble attracting clients, but there's nothing that shows how blowing this case puts them in further trouble).
The issue understandably doesn't get into any complications around the fact that Two-Gun spent time in the present, presumably after the incident depicted here. This might have made a more interesting story for Two-Gun while he was in the present instead of using the mostly unrelated (except, as the story notes, that they were both lawyers) Daredevil.

According to Avengers #144 the Two-Gun Kid travelled from the year 1873 to the (then) present of 1975. He later attempted to return to the past using a time machine of the Collector's, but an issue of Dan Slott's She-Hulk series shows that the Time Variance Authority shanghaied him in transit to keep him from altering the past with future knowledge, and at that point Matt Hawk became a regular in Shulkie's book for awhile. Still, the Marvels Project mini-series shows that Two-Gun does eventually return to the past, apparently before 1885 to take part in the events depicted herein. (Whew!)

Two-Gun is depicted in the past in West Coast Avengers during the time travel story with memories of his time in the present/being good friends with Hawkeye. So we found out he got back to his own time a LOT earlier than Marvels Project.
