1. Herman and Willie Lehmann Marker
Inscription. German immigrants Moritz and Auguste Lehmann settled along Squaw Creek (4 mi. w) in the 1850s. After Moritzís death, Auguste married Phillip 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 returned home, 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 Parkerís Comanche family, into which he had been adopted, for the remainder of his life.
