Rudolph Fischer (1852 - 1941) was a White captive of the Comanche tribe for decades. Abducted at age 13 by a Comanche war party near Fredericksburg, he was adopted into the Comanche tribe. Like some others caught in this situation, Rudolph accepted the Indian lifestyle so completely that he refused to leave it when given the chance. He took two Comanche wives and went with the tribe to its new slice of Oklahoma, where "he was fruitful and multiplied."
