About Quatie Ross (Brown)

Elizabeth "Quatie" Brown was the daughter of Thomas Brown and Unkn; she married: (1) Robert Richardson Henley (b. 3 Oct 1790) who was killed in the War of 1812 and had at least one child: Susan "Fatima Ross" Henley who married William Shorey Coody and Zachariah Lewis Pogue.

She married in 1813, Chief John Ross of the Cherokees; they had the following children: James McDonald (b. 1814), William Allen (b. 1817); Silas Dean (b. 1829); George Washington Ross (b. 1830); John Ross Jr. (b. 1832); and Nancy Jane "Jennie" Ross (b. 1821) (all of the children born in the Cherokee Nation East).

She appears as Quatie Hare on the 1835 census of the Cherokee Nation East at Red Clay in McMinn County, with two full-bloods and four half-bloods, three of whom could read English. She might have been connected in some way with James Hare, who appears on the same census.

Quatie died on the "Trail of Tears." A story goes that she gave up her blanket to a sick child, and died of pneumonia as the result.
