    In the 1900 US census of Oklahoma Territory, Mah Che to Wock Ki'sdaughter is reported as Laura.  There was an earlier child of Quanahnamed Laura, born in 1882, according to the 1905 Comanche census.Laura here matches Bessie in other lists.  That older Laura seems tobe a daughter of Quanah's wife Ne-dah, who is not in the list on thispage of the 1900 census.  Here it is odd that Laura's father isreported born in Texas, as is the father of two other children in thislist.  But Quanah is definitely their father.
