Today we found three caches in Parker County, Texas...yes, named of Quanah Parker's mother's family...her uncle, Colonel Isaac Parker (if you don't know the story, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Indians).
On May 19, 1836, Fort Parker was attacked by several hundred Caddo, Comanche and Kiowa. They killed several of its inhabitants. During the raid the Comanches seized five captives, including Cynthia Ann. Within 6 years, all the captives had been returned to their white families, except Cynthia Ann who remained with the Indians for almost twenty-five years, forgot white ways, and became thoroughly Comanche.
In the last years of Cynthia Ann's life she never saw her Indian family, the only family she really knew. But she was a true pioneer of the American West, whose legacy was carried on by her son Quanah. Serving as a link between whites and Comanches, Quanah Parker became the most influential Comanche leader of the reservation era.
We went down a couple of road we had not been down before. Here we are on the Old Millsap Road, we came upon a large flock to tom turkeys and across the road a few buffalos! Fun day, but the wind was extremely high.
