Profile of the route from the head of the Ke-che-ah-que-ho-no to Fort Arbuckle
Randolph Barnes Marcy (April 9, 1812 – November 22, 1887) was a career officer in the United States Army, achieving the rank of Brigadier General before retiring in 1881.
In 1852, Capt. Marcy was in charge of the expedition that first reached the headwaters of both forks of the Red River, which official parties had tried to find since 1806. The Ke-che-ah-que-ho-no is the main branch of the Red River.
