    Baldwin Parker, Son of Famed Chief, Dies

    Baldwin Parker, 75, son of Comanche Indian Chief Quanah Parker, died about 3:35 p.m. Sunday in a local hospital following a week's illness.

    He was one of the last of the elder tribesmen who still wore his hair in long braids. Braided hair was a tradition with older Indians.  Mr. Parker was born in December, 1887, at Fort Sill, while his family was encamped there.

    As a child, he lived in his father's two-story "Star House," in the shadow of the Wichita Mountains north of Cache. He lived on his land north of Cache until it was taken in the Fort Sill expansion.  He then moved to an area west of Cache.

    He attended a school established by his father on the Parker Ranch. The school was attended by both Indian and white children. He also attended Chilocco Indian school.

    Mr. Parker worked in the post engineering department at Fort Sill during World War I, and in service at Ahas Air Force Base and Liberal, Kansas, during World War II.

    His father is said to have introduced the peyote religion to the Comanches, and Baldwin Parker was also active in the Native American Indian church.  He was converted to the Cache Indian Nazarene church almost two years ago.  Services are pending at Becker Funeral home and burial will be at the Nazarene cemetery west of Cache.  [but note that burial actually was in the Intertribal Cemetery.  See end of the record below.]

    He was married to Nora Tabbanoid in Lawton ca 1901.

    He is survived by his wife, of Rt. 1, Cache; two daughters, Mrs. Ollie Wahkinney, 2620 G. and Mrs. Jo Ann Sands, Oakland, Calif.; six sons, Elmer, of 1715 Floyd; Roy, of 2709½ C.; Simmons, of Los Angeles, Calif.; Wilbur, of Mescalera, N.M.; Whit Choney, 1814 Dearberg(?), and Baldwin, Jr., of Indiahoma.

    He is also survived by a brother, Tom, of Apache, and four sisters, Mrs. Alice Purdy, Germany; Mrs. Neda Birdsong, Cache; Mrs. Wanda Page, 2713 __?; and Mrs. Emma Tahmakhera, Cache.

    Mr. Parker and his wife attended the recent Chief Satana historical celebration held only two weeks ago at Fort Sill.

    Follow-up Note: Baldwin and Nora were married on Sep. 5, 1905 at Lawton (per Oklahoma Marriages, familysearch.org).
