    Son of Chief Quanah Parker Dies at Fletcher

    Lawton, Okla. - Johnnie Parker, one of the surviving sons of Chief Quannah (sic) Parker, last Comanche chief, died Saturday night at his home near Fletcher and was buried Monday afternoon in the Indian cemetery four miles east of that place. He was 36 years old. Death was due to tuberculosis. Parker was married and leaves besides his wife, several children.

    Follow-up Note: my assumption is that his date of death is November 18th. [? But the obit was Sunday the 19th and it states that it was the previous Saturday (8 days earlier)  and burial was on the previous Monday.]

    The marriage record for John Parker shows he married to Katie Watchcoddy on Feb. 15, 1912 at Lawton (familysearch.org). Katie is also known as Katie Monatoboy, #49844999. According to Indian census records she was the daughter of Monatoboy, aka Tom Watchcoddy (or Watchacoddy) and Namihay.
