    Walter Komah
    Birth May, 1884
    Death unknown

    He was the son of Ko-mah, and Se-kah-u-ah (per Indian census rolls),registered fullblood Comanche with the KCA (Kiowa, Comanche, ApacheAgency/Reservation).

    I also found this small bit of information on Walter from the bookTaking the Jesus Road: The Ministry of the Reformed Church in Amerca.by LeRoy Koopman (books.google.com), page 169:
    "The interpreter of the Comanche congregation, Walter Komah, alsoserved as Sunday school superintendent, pastoral visitor, and stablehand. On Sunday evenings, while Legter was at Apache, Komah often tookcharge of the Comanche meetings, which included prayer, Bible reading,and testimonals. Komah's wife was a daughter of Quanah Parker, and hisstory illustrates the dilemma of many Indian youth who went away todistant Indian schools. Against the will of his parents, Komahenrolled at the Carlisle Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania,where he stayed five years. He then went to Boston, where he worked byday and attended high school at night. After a year and a half inBoston, he returned to Carlisle with the intention of completing hiseducation. But this was not to be. Three months before commencement hereturned home for a short vacation, and, yielding to family pressure,he never returned."
    (Cited source in book: Walter Komah himself in "A Letter from anInterpreter," Day Star, May 1908)."
