the Pawnee. Man Riding on a Cloud #20 is a nephew to Man on cloud #2078. Man on Cloud #2078 visited Carlisle Indian School with his friend Mad Wolf and several other Cheyennes while traveling to Washington D.C. Writers of  Cheyenne history have always confused Man on cloud #2078 with his nephew Man Riding on a Cloud #20. Man on Cloud #2078 was married to Marble #2079 which should be translated as Stone Road Woman or Hard Road Woman. She is buried at the Cantonment Indian Cemetery and he is buried at the Watonga Indian Cemetery. Iron Shirt 
is buried at Watonga Indian Cemetery. Sprinkle Horse Woman is buried at Watonga Indian Cemetery. Measure Woman Standing Bird is buried at the Clinton Indian Cemetery. Henry Standing Bird (son-in-law of Medicine Water No. 2) and Medicine Water No. 2 are buried on a lone hill northeast of Clinton, Okla. with several other old Cheyennes. Mochi, wife of Medicine water No. 2 
died in 1880 and was laid to rest with all honors of a Cheyenne Indian Warrior Woman along the Washita (Lodge Pole River). Medicine Water No. 2 died on the Standing Bird allotment 5 miles northeast of Clinton, oklahoma and was buried with all honors of a Head War Chief of the Cheyenne Bowstring Warrior Society. Man on Cloud #2078, Iron Shirt #2080, Alights on Cloud, and 
their nephew, Man riding on a Cloud #20, were all Cheyenne Chiefs. Standing Bird , 
son-in-law, of Medicine Water No.2 was a Chief and Road Priest for the Native American Church. Man on Cloud #2078 led a war party to Texas in the early 1860s and captured a small Mexican boy that was adopted into the tribe and received an allotment in 1892. Man on Cloud #2078 was Sgt. of the Indian Police at Darlington, a Sgt. in the Cheyenne Indian Scouts, spoke against the land allotments in 1890-92, went to Washington D.C. for the tribe as spokesman. He rode and fought 
with his brothers Medicine Water and Iron Shirt. Iron shirt and the extended kinship were camped in the floor of Palo Duro Canyon and attacked by soldiers in the Red River War of 1874-75 just prior to the surrender of the last Cheyennes at darlington and Ft. Reno when Medicine Water and Mochi were put in chains and shackles to be shipped to Ft. Marion.
