    It is thought that Peta Nocona died at the battle of Pease River in 1860, but it is uncertain.  Thebattle occurred near Margaret, Texxas, in Foard County near the Peasr River.

    "The Battle of Pease River occurred on December 18, 1860, near the town of Margaret, Texas in Foard County, Texas, United States. The town is located between Crowell and Vernon within sight of the Medicine Mounds just outside present-day Quanah, Texas. A monument on that spot marks the site of the famous battle between the Comanche Indians under Peta Nocona and a detachment of Texas Rangers and militia under Ranger Captain 'Sul' Ross. The battle was fought to protect the lives and property of white settlers in the area who had encroached on land historically belonging to the Comanches. This very small skirmish gradually acquired an unwarranted grandiosity as a major Texan historical event primarily due to the self-promotion by Sul Ross who claimed that 'the great Comanche confederacy was forever broken, the blow was decisive, their illustrious chief slept with his fathers and with him were most of his doughty warriors.'"

    But Niocona's son Quanah Parker contended that his father did not die at the Pease River battle, and was not enven there, but died about 2-4 years later.

    "But Quanah Parker, the chief's oldest son, once reportedly said in Dallas to Sul Ross, 'No kill my father; he not there.  I want to get it straight here in Texas history.  After that, two year, three year maybe, my father sick. I see him die.'  Certainly Quanah Parker said on numerous occasions to both friend and foe that his father had survived the massacre of his band, and died 3-4 years later of complications from old war wounds suffered against the Apaches.  In this story, strongly supported by the Comanche people, Peta Nocona was out hunting with his oldest son and a few others when the attack occurred."
