thank you for sharing that picture. herwanee was my second great grandmother. her daughter kathaleen was my great grandmother . Maggie heath was my great aunt. or our way my other great grandmother. I have pictures of them that my mother has given to me. I am ch. apache choctaw and comanche . I have been very interested in learning my family tree . I know about my mother side the comanche and choctaw but I would like to know more of my father side of the family. Chester sundayman of mescalero ,nm is my great grandfather and I don't know anything about him and the family history. this amazed me to see my great grandmothers.
I am a biographer of a man from Lawton, OK, Don Blanding. I have newspaper quotes saying that John Loco and Don Blanding were friends in Lawton and Loco used to take Blanding, then maybe 15-16 years old into the Wichita Mts to teach him how to survive in the Mts. I have one photo of John Loco from the Omaha Library. I doubt there is any information on record of the Loco/Blanding connection but I'd sure like to confirm that and if there is, it might be at Ft. Sill. Does this peak any interest and am I in the right spot to investigate this? Appreciate any help in this.
A tribute to Elder Vernon Simmons at Mescalero New Mexico.
Left to right: Maggie Heath Parker, Totite (great grandmother of Vernon Simmons), Herwanna Hositosavit (grandmother of Vernon Simmons), Allan Hosetosavit,
Vernon Simmons was my uncle (my mother's half-brother); their mother was Kathleen Hosetosavit, daughter of Herwauney. Is it possible that I get a copy of the photo you're referring to? My mother has no photos of Totite and this would be a great gift for her!
Not Sure if this is the right place to ask, I am looking for a copy of a photograph. It is a group photograph of the last Chiricahua gathering before the majority of them departed for the Mescalero Indian reservation. It was taken at Fort Sill , April 1913. The photograph was Published in " The Chiricahua Apache prisoners of war, by john Anthony Turcheneske jr." I know the photograph came from the Fort Sill Museum Archives. Sadly they do not take any requests / research questions due to staff shortages. So there is no way of getting a copy through them. I know it is a long shot but if some one does own a copy and would not mind sharing it, I would really appreciate it, Thanks!
Saskia, I think this is the image you are looking for. It is named "The parting". I' m sorry I don't have it but if not possible to get it from the Ft Sill M archives, I would give it a try in The Museum Of The Great Plains, Okla. ( They had it there, don't know now).
