This month in Texas history
Date: April 8, 1861
On this day, the Texas legislature voted to give Cynthia Ann Parker a grant of $110 annually for five years and a league of land and appointed Isaac and Benjamin Parker to be her guardians. Captured by Indians when she was 9 or 10, Cynthia Ann lived with the Comanches for nearly 25 years before she was returned to white society.
