Shortly thereafter the remains of
Cynthia Ann journeyed to Cache, Oklahoma,
and were reinterred at the Post
Oak Mission Cemetery adjoining
Quanah's ranch. At the ceremony Chief
Parker said, "I love my mother. I like my
white people. Got great heart. I want my
people follow after white way, get educated,
know work, make living when payments
stop. I tell 'em they got to know
pick cotton, plow corn. I want them
know white man's God. Comanche may
die today, tomorrow, ten year. When end
comes they all be together again. I want
see my mother again then."
On February 23, 1911, less than three
months after his mother's reburial,
Quanah lay beside her, reunited at last in
death. What had begun in blood and terror
at Parker's Fort now rested in peace
beneath the waving grasses of Oklahoma.
