Amanda was a daughter of a Cherokee who was prominent and father sold her to William Wesley Kirkland, a Texas Ranger, in Oklahoma for some horses and guns. Her father would not allow them to marry, so William Wesley Kirkland traded for her. They lived in Comanche TX. She is buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Comanche, TX.
We have pictures of her, but do not have her father or mother’s name. Any information would be helpful.
