    Quanah and 5 of his wives were enumerated on the same page of the 1900US census of Oklahoma Territory.  The enumerator has reported Quanah'sand his parents' birth state as Texas, yet for all the children Topese up, Honnnie, Laura and Kelsey, he has reported their father as bornin Oklahoma Territory.  The 1900 census says Quanah and To-nar-cy havebeen married 24 years.  Tis would mean they married about 1876.  Buther reported birth year is 1865, which would mean they married whenshe was about 11.  He birth year was probably earlier, but the agereported in 1905 and 1910 also makes birth about 1865.

    Quanah's record reports this is his 2nd marriage.  The 1900 censusreports that he had been married to Tonarcy 24 years, to Weck-e-ah 22years.  But Cynthia Ann, the daughter of Weck-e-ah, is reported to beQuanah's first child.  I do not have a confirmed name for Tonarcy'sone child.  This 1910 census tells us her child has died.

    Quanah died in 1911.  In later censuses, the family group is stilltogether.  In the 1911 census, page 20 reprots many of the Parkerfamily units, including Aer wuth takeum with her second husband.  Wesee here the mixed usage of English and Comanche names with individualfamily members.
