Chief Quanah Parker with three of his wives, a son and a baby in a cradleboard. - Lambert - 1905


  1. The story of Quanah, his mother and of Texas and the Comanche is a particularly interesting one. Sitting Bull always admired and coveted Quanah's fine house that the US Army built for him at Ft. Sill, OK (It's still there).

  2. Much history on Ft Sill. I had on post housing on post and the housing area was called Quanah Parker Square.
    it is an interesting note that I often see his grave. I work two blocks from the cemetery that he was moved to on ft Sill, and its just up the hill from my sons grave in the same cemetery.
    Thank you for this interesting photo
