He took aim at one of them and shot the brave off his horse. This immediately ended the battle and the Comanches withdrew. Two weeks after the battle, Gen.
Nelson A. Miles ordered a U. Army survey crew to measure the shot. Billy Dixon never acknowledged the shot as anything but sheer luck. Time passed and in Cynthia Ann and a group of Comanche women and Mexican slaves were at a "meat camp" killing and preserving meat for the winter when attacked by Texas Rangers led by Captain Sull Ross. It has been widely written that Peta Nakoni was killed at the raid but this is untrue. The personal servant of Cynthia who was a Mexican slave was known as Jose or "Joe" Nakoni taking his masters last name.
When the rangers asked Cynthia who was the man killed she answered truthfully, Jose Nakoni. Peta Nakoni was not killed by the Texas Rangers or Sull Ross that day as he was leading a raiding party hundreds of miles away. The camp raided by the rangers was a temporary meat camp populated by women, Mexican slaves and old people. The Rangers managed to kill a lot of women and old people in that "battle".
But, like so many other stories in Texas history, the legend took a life of it's own and the truth is often difficult to discern. Years later, Mrs. Birdsong said that her father, as chief of the Comanche, forbid the relating of the true details of the killing of Peta Nakoni for the following reason: "Out of respect to the family of General Ross, do not deny that he killed Peta Nakoni. If it is any credit to him to have killed my father, let his people continue to believe that he did so.
The exact burial place of Nakoni is not known.

After Cynthia Ann and her infant daughter were taken back to an army post, the participants were discussing whom the white woman might be. Cynthia Ann was returned with her daughter to her uncle Isaac Parker no relation to the judge where she made several escapes attempts to return to her Comanche family.
She was returned to her family each time. Slowly the loss of her Comanche family and husband and the free ways of the Comanche took their toll on her. She repeatedly asked to be allowed to return to the Comanche but her family refused. Cynthia learned to speak English and the ways of the white woman learning to weave and cook all the while longing to be in her home teepee. The unaccustomed life style she now faced caused her to begin to loose her health as well as that of her daughter Topsannah Prairie Flower.
