The Comanche names are spelled in some genealogies, histories and other pieces as one word as in English names. Others use the hyphenated pattern that distinguishes the individual words in the phrases that make up most Comanche names. Different formats of the hyphenation are also found in the various sources, including that of A-er-with-take-um. I have followed the hyphenated Comanche format generally found in the Comanche censuses. This is not totally consistent, but I have followed the 1905 census, which reports almost all members of Quanah Parker's family (lacking one wife and some of the older children). Similar spellings are found in the other Comanche Roll and US Census records. Some additional names are found in other sources. Where the hyphenated form is found, this is used in the primary name here. ------------------ The fourth wife was Ah-Uh-Wuth-Takum. A.

She was over 95. Funeral services were conducted at the St. Patrick's Catholic mission this morning as large numbers of relatives and friends paid final respects to the widely-known Indian woman. Father Girard, pastor, officiated at the rites, celebrating high mass. Born in the old Oklahoma Territory, Aer-wuth-tak-um had four children by Quanah Parker, three of whom survive her. They are Tom Parker and Lynn Parker, of south of Apache, and a daughter, Mrs. Neda Birdsong of Cache. A second daughter, Esther Sunrise, preceded her in death. Other survivors include 32 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Aer-wuth-tak-um lived about a half mile north of Apache for about 50 years, after moving from the Cache area shortly before the opening here. In addition to the Comanche chieftain, she had two other husbands, Sidney Mahseet, and Pochin, both now dead. Burial was in the Anadarko cemetery under the direction of the Smith Funeral home of Apache." ============= From the records I've looked at Aerwuthtakum's name is also given as Ah-uh-wuth-takum. She married secondly to Taum-mer-ra-da, aka Sidney Mahseet (I've never been able to find a burial listing for him in any of the indexes and databases I use). She married thirdly to Albert Kosechat, memorial #52122254. I think Albert is the one identified as Pochin in her obit. -- Information provided by Lisa Stalnaker. [Notes by OBJ: In the 1905 Comanche census, Quanah's whole family who are still living with him or around him, with all his wives, are enumerated in a sequence on one page. In this list, A-er-wuth-take-um is listed with her sons Len and Thomas and two younger daughters and one younger son. But here her husband is already Sidney Mahseet, while Quanah is still alive, reported as the first in the list, with his wife To-nar-cy as a family unit. (See 1905 census transcription below.) The two sons Len and Thomas are reported as Stepsons, apparently meaning Stepsons of the husband, Sidney. So how did she marry Sidney while Quanah was still alive, and in the same family-village group with Quanah? It was my understanding that men could have multiple wives but women did not have multiple husbands. Maybe this was not a firm rule?] ============= Spouses: Quanah Parker (1845 - 1911) Albert Kosechata (1867 - 1941) Children: Esther Parker Tabbyyetchy (____ - 1919) Neda P.

There was no such political or geographical entity at the time. Oklahoma Territory was not established by the United States until 1890. This territory included previous Indian areas, including the Comanche, Apache and Kiowa reservation where Quanah Parker had agreed to settle with his people. This was in the area of Comanche County, Oklahoma. This area that was incorporated into Oklahoma had previously been a part of the free area of the Comanches, referred to as Comancheria, and other reservations where other nations had already been moved to and bounded by. The Comanches were settled in the reservation alloted earlier to the Apaches and Kiowas, and became known as the Apache, Comanche and Kiowa Reservation, administered out of the Kiowa Indian Agency. Most of Quanah's children were born on the Comanche Reservation in Oklahoma Territory. Indian Territory consisted of the eastern section of what is now Oklahoma. Indian Territory bordered Oklahoma Territory on a jagged line along roughly the center of the current state. Oklahoma Territory went farther east from the center north, and Indian Territory covered the eastern center of the state south of Oklahoma Territory. The two territories and some other areas were all incorporated into the new State of Oklahoma in December 1907.

Charles' parents, Charles Adams and Fannie Colbert Conchran Green, married in about 1879. "She married Charles Adams circa 1879. (Charles Adams is #26911.) She married Dr. Theophilus H. East in Berwyn, Pickens Co., Chick Nation, IT, 13 MAY 1884. They had no children." [Other sources report two children Charles and Oliver.] -- Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert, http://www.chickasawhistory.com/colbert/i0026899.htm#i29612b We learn in evidence in the Divorce case of Francis Colbert Adams against Charles Adams that Charles abandoned her while she was pregnant in October 1880. A son Charles appears in several later records, including the Chickasaw census cards for 1902, reporting his as 22 years old (so born about 1880). The 1900 census reports Francis, reported as a widow, rather than as Divorced, with one child, named Oliver L Adams, and reported born in December 1881. But the divorce testimonies report that Charles abandoned Fannie in October 1880. So the census must in error, as usual, and the actual birth date was probably December 1880. But this seems to indicate that the reported Son Charles and the son Oliver were the same child. And indeed some early genealogies report this.

Testimony in the divorce case reports that Charles abandoned Fannie in October 1880 and had not returned or been heard from since that time. Testimony also indicates that she was pregnant with a child. Oliver had to be born a short time after that.

Ages were not thought of in absolute objective terms back then like they are now. Especially on the frontier, and in tranditional concrete-relational societies, which focued on life events, not absoluteabstrct facts. It seems the name Oliver never appears again. 1910 Federal Census, Love County, Oklahoma, 27 April, Washington Township, District 173, page 5A, Hse #85, Fam #86 East, Francis Head F Indian 73 Widow OK MS MS Occupation "Own Account" Owns Adams, Charles Son M Indian 25 Single OK TX OK The 1910 census has his age as 25, but the earlier Dawes' registration says he was age 22, so born 1880. We can see the folks in that era did not focus on the value of abstract "facts" and information as a critical factor of life.
The Chickasaw History reports that Charles Adams and Fannie Colbert-Green-Cochran had no children. This source reports that they married in about 1879. Then the source reports that Fannie married her next husband, Theophilus East, on 13 May 1884. But one of Charles' children, Charles, was born abt 1885, estimated from his age in the 1910 census. He could have been born in 1884. So it had previously appeared that he was Fannie's son. Another child, Oliver, was born Dec 1881 according to the 1900 census. Later facts indicated that Charles wa born earlier, abotu 1880, since Charles abandoned Fannie while she was preegnant (apparently with Oliver) in October 1880. IN his 1902 Chcikasaw census card, Charles was reproted as 22 years old, thus born about 1880. I had assumed this meant that Fannie and Charles had married about 1880 or 1879. This matches Chckasaw History. But it also appeared that both these sons were Fannie's. Fannie would have been about 50 when Oliver was born, possible, and a bit older when Charles was born, stretching it. This owuld match the Chickasaw Archives report that Fannie and Charles married in 1879, and the Divorce testimony that Chalres abandoned Fannie in October 1880, while she was pregnant with their second child (Oliver, born Dec 1881). However, if the was born in Dec of 1881 (instead of 1880), this means they still had to be together till about at least March 1881. But if Fannie is not their mother, I do not know who the mother was, and the birth date for Charles Jr would seem to be wrong, if the Chickasaw History source is correct about the marriage date of Fannie and Charles Sr. "She married Charles Adams circa 1879. (Charles Adams is #26911.) She married Dr. Theophilus H. East in Berwyn, Pickens Co., Chick Nation, IT, 13 MAY 1884. They had no children."

Several redords are found to document facts of Betty's and here husband's life. In personal correspondence, their granddaughter reported their marriage date. North Carolina, County Marriages, 1762-1979 Wm Lovin, Age 21 (b abt 1860) Elizabeth Adams, Age 18 (b abt 1863) License issue 30 May 1881 Marriage 12 June 1881 Graham, North Caroiina, United States Ceremony by T J Cooper, Minister, in the home of John Adams (father of the bride) Witnesses Elizabeth Deaver, Leney Davis Recorded Graham County Marriage Book North Carolina Archives Microfilm 1903 The North Carolina marriage record has the date reported by their granddaughter. This matches the number of years married reported on the 1900 census. But her birth year reported in that census is 1869, as Virginia also reports above, which could not fit. However, the age reported on her marriage record is 18, which makes birth about 1863, five years earlier than reported on the 1900 census and on her death certificate. The birth date is likely wrong. It is not uncommon for later recall by family members reports birth dates later than the actual case. At any rate, given the facts recorded in North Carolina Marriage records, we should accept that record's report of age, and resulting likely birth year, over the very often incorrect 1900 cnesus, and the fallible recall of her husband almost a century later. In regard to Bettie's marriag eand related family matters, her granddaughter comments: "Regarding the marriage age of my grandmother, Bettie Adams Lovin, we've noted that and are not sure of dates since records differ and were not great in some families in the US during those days. Have seen a different date some time ago but just coming back to research genealogy, so for now ok with 12 yrs. My mother made the claims that 1) she (my mother Juanita Lovin Perkins) was the youngest of 14 children of William and Bettie's children; 2) that she herself was 16 when she married; and 3) that my grandmother, Bettie, was part Cherokee but my DNA does not show any Native American heritage, although a grandson has a small amount of Native Indian heritage." -- Virginia Baxt, Ancestry Messaging to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 3 October 2019 U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 Awk Lovin White Male Birth 5 Jan 1880 Graham County, North Carolina Father Will Lovin Mother Elizabeth Adams SSN 408229887 Nov 1939 Name listed as AWK LOVIN Tennessee Certificate of Death Elizabeth C Lovin Age 75 years, 3 months, 22 days Birth 29 September 1869 Graham County, Tennessee Married Housewife Husband William Lovin Father John Adams, born Graham County, North Carolina Mother Martha Crisp, born Graham County, North Carolina Informant William Lovin, Madisonville, Tennessee Death 21 January 1945 At home, Madisonville, Monroe County, Tennessee Cause of Death Myocarditis with Cardiac Failure for 6 weeks, due to Terminal Hypertension for many years Burial 23 January 1945 Sunset Cemetery, Monroe County, Tennessee, by Bierley Funeral Home, Madisonville, Tennessee Filed 25 January 1945 The birth date reported on Betty's death certificate, and thus used on her grave has the year as 1869.
