Cynthia Ann Parker who was captured as a little girl was raised by the Indian's and latter married a member of the tribe. She had a son named Quanah Parker who had the chisseled features and dark skin of a Native American Indian, but had his mothers blue eyes. He was a very imposing figure and grew up to become "War Chief of the Comanche Nation! Decenden's of the Parker Family still reside in Elkhart Texas where I grew up. :-)
What a nice view and capture of this fort Henry and very nice to read the little story you add to it! LIKE
btw, thank you for the birthday wishes;-))
Thanks Yvonne, some of my friends I grew up with are decendants of the original Parker family setelers. The main street down the middle of our little town is named Parker St.
I adore the mood in this one!
Perfectly done Henry! L+YS
I remember reading a book about Cynthia Ann Parker.. I cannot remember the name. I'm thinking it was in first person though... written sort of like a diary. I can remember "her" saying that she would put bear grease on her hair to darken it and a number of other things she did as well to fit in with the tribe. It was fascinating.
Best wishes to you! Smiles, GG:)
You are making my head swell with pride for my photos today GG. I hope it doesn't "PoP"! :-0 Thankyou for all of the wonderful comments, you have started my day out very nicely. Warm wishes, henry
Great treatment on this shot! Looks a bit as if in a dream. Thanks for the story to go with it! Like!
Great image here, a real pioneer feeling about it.. We should preserve these type of buildings..
Thanks GG! This park is small and due to state budget cutbacks, it is getting by on a shoe string.
