The Comanche County Museum has been aware for several years of a lonely grave that holds two young black girls in Oakwood Cemetery. These girls were killed in the late 1800s in south Comanche. They were murdered as they lived with the Nabors family along with two of the Nabors young boys. A man named Mose used a sharp axe to kill all four and then tried to burn their home to cover up his crime. He was caught and hung for his horrible deed. Both were buried together and the grave never marked.

The Comanche County Museum has chosen to mark the graves and tell the story of these two girls. An appreciative stone marker will be purchased for the girls to share. A fund is being collected at the museum. All donations to assist with this memorial stone will be appreciated.
