Cynthia Ann Parker was born somewhere between June 1824 to may 1825. She was born in Kentucky to parents Lucy and Silas M. Parker.
At the age of 9 or 10 herself and her family moved to Texas and built Fort Parker in Comanche and Kiowa Territory.
On May 19, 1836 a large group of Comanches invaded Fort Parker. They took 3 prisoners including Cynthia, The other 4 prisoners were released eventually but Cynthia stayed as she had fallen in love of the Comanche ways and forgotten all white ways.
Cynthia would go on to marry Comanche Pete Nocona and have 2 sons and a daughter named Quanah and Pecos and their daughter Topsannah.
On December 18, 1860 the Comanche village was raided by the Texas Rangers Led by Lawrence Sullivan Ross. He captured 3 people including a non-speaking white woman who was later identified as Cynthia Ann Parker. Cynthia never saw her husband or any of her kids again.
Cynthia's official death age was never determined. She was buried in Fosterville Cemetery but her son Quanah later moved her body to Fort Sill Post Cemetery where Quanah was later buried. Although Cynthia had a rather rough life she will always be remembere as a true American Pioneer.
