"Herman and Willie Lehmann"

"German Immigrants Moritz and Auguste Lehmann settled along Squaw Creek (4 mi W) in the 1850's.  After Moritz's death, Auguste married Philip Buchmeier, on May 16, 1870.  Two of the Lehmann 
children, Herman (age 10) and Willie (age 8) were captured by Apache Indians.  Willie was released after five days and returnedhome, but Herman remained with the Apache and Comanche Indians for 
eight years.  He was returned to his family by U.S. Soldiers in 1878 but maintained his ties to Quanah Parker's Comanche family, into which he had been adopted, for the remainder of this life" (1991)
