Tonse (Crawler), daughter of Geronimo and Chee-hash-Kish (wife of "Mike" Da-Ke-ya). I....Don't....Think....So!!!! For many years ALL have believed this young woman to be her, including experts and authors/writers (even Angie Debo). This young woman, like a few others whom took studio photos, doesn't even show up in the 2 known groups photos of captive Chiricahua woman and children in 1886. I don't know who she is....yet I do know she IS NOT....DOHN-SAY!!!!
Note: The quote of the photographer Baker and Johnson states only Tonse (Crawler) a relative of Naiche.
I read again and with better accurate. Tonse was not Dohnsay, Geronimo's daughter. On the picture posted by Mithlo it was written relative of Naiche in what way? and as her haircut she seemed married. Could it be with Shoei from Naiche's group ?
For the Valentin Day, a thought to the Apache lovers.
To the warriors who took care and respected their wifes more than much of the white men (the civilized) of their at this time. And to the Apache women who endured the hard life in the mountain, especially on the 1880's, following their lover.
This a photo of 2 women of Geronimo and Naiche's group at Fort Houston. I think they were Biyaneta and Haozinne, but I am not sure.

NICE WORK TOO Mithlo ! Thanks a lot, it helps me on the 144 list. I still think n°9 was Na-dos-te just an idea. I change my mind and it was possible that N)10 was Bekiva, 10 years daughter of Stalosh and Dishtel I am quite sure that n°11 and 12 were Nezulkide's wife and child because when he died on june 1886 (3 months later) he had a wife and one year child. Nezulkide was the last to come back in San Carlos in 1884. When Geronimo and Naiche went away again on march 1886, he followed them. Why did he changed his mind? I think because his wife and chid were captured in august, 1885 during the attack by scouts of Geronimo and Mangas common camp. I am sure that n°13 was Loozah, wife of Tsinah, who would named Lucy Tsinah. It would explain too why Tsinah did not stay with his brothers Fun and Perico.
