Walter Komah
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: May, 1884
Death: unknown

He was the son of Ko-mah, and Se-kah-u-ah (per Indian census rolls), registered fullblood Comanche with the KCA (Kiowa, Comanche, Apache Agency/Reservation).
I also found this small bit of information on Walter from the book Taking the Jesus Road: The Ministry of the Reformed Church in Amerca, etc. by LeRoy Koopman (books.google.com), page 169: "The interpreter of the Comanche congregation, Walter Komah, also served as Sunday school superintendent, pastoral visitor, and stable hand. On Sunday evenings, while Legter was at Apache, Komah often took charge of the Comanche meetings, which included prayer, Bible reading, and testimonals. Komah's wife was a daughter of Quanah Parker, and his story illustrates the dilemma of many Indian youth who went away to distant Indian schools. Against the will of his parents, Komah enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where he stayed five years. He then went to Boston, where he worked by day and attended high school at night. After a year and a half in Boston, he returned to Carlisle with the intention of completing his education. But this was not to be. Three months before commencement he returned home for a short vacation, and, yielding to family pressure, he never returned." (Cited source in book: Walter Komah himself in "A Letter from an Interpreter," Day Star, May 1908)."
