Actually, I do know about Adobe Walls. It was led by Quanah Parker, who is big here in Texas. His mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, was abducted as a girl in Central Texas and lived happily for many years with the Commanche before she was "rescued." Quanah Parker was also a personal hero of an old friend of mine. I was in the process of getting some duplicates made of photos in our Special Collections as a gift, but my friend died. Alas, Parker died sometime after injury he sustained in a visit to Fort Worth. He and a friend were in a hotel room and one put out the light, not realizing that the gas was still flowing. The friend died.
