Quanah Parker was born about 1850 and was the son of Cynthia Ann Parker and Peta Nocona.
Quanah adjusted to living among white men unlike her mother.
Quanah didn't accept the Treaty of Medicine Lodge, which confined Plains Indians to reservations.
Quanah decided to raid in Texas and Mexico because of the deceptive treaties of "White men."
Ranald S. Mackenzie sent a physician and post interpreter to persuade Quanah to surrender. The physician found Quanah and pleaded his case. On June 2, 1875, Quanah and his band surrendered. Mackenzie then appointed Quanah Parker as the chief of the Comanche shortly after his surrender.
On February 23, 1911, Quanah Parker died and was buried next to Cynthia Ann Parker, his mother.
