  1. Fascinating!!

    Cynthia Ann Parker was Comanche Indian Chief Quanha Parker’s Mother.

    I spent quite some time reading through the info online.

  2. Cynthia Ann Parker: She was nine years old when captured in the Fort Parker massacre in May 1836. She spent most of the rest of her life with the Comanche, marrying a Chief, Peta Nocona, and giving birth to a son, Quanah Parker, who would become the last Chief of the Comanches.

  3. Congratulations to Joye!! Joye is the winner of this month’s Wild West Trivia Contest. Joye, please send your snail mail address to Marin@marinthomas.com and I’ll ship a book off to you.
