Comanche boy Pease Ross was the only male survivor of the 1860 raid in which Cynthia Ann Parker was recaptured from the tribe. Texas Ranger and soldier Sul Ross found the boy and took him to Waco to live with the Ross family. Offered the opportunity to return to the Comanches, he chose to stay with his adopted family. He eventually married the daughter of a former slave. This tintype photo is one of the oldest photographic images of a Comanche. Source: Lawrence T. Jones III. Photo: 1861.
