Birth: 1791
Death: Feb. 1, 1839

Cherokee Figure. Current scholarship suggests that she was born Quatie Elizabeth Brown, daughter of Thomas Brown and Elizabeth Martin. Little is known of her life before her marriage to Chief John Ross. She had been married previously to a man named Henley, by whom she had a daughter. She and Ross were married about 1813 and had five children together. They owned one of the richest farms in north Georgia of some 200 acres and other businesses and were largely assimilated. Between 1838 and 1839, approximately 17,000 Cherokee were forced from their eastern lands into exile in Indian Territory present day Oklahoma. On the infamous Trail of Tears, Quatie suffered from exposure and developed pneumonia. She died near present day Little Rock, Arkansas and was buried there. A legend, now greatly circulated, relates that Quatie sacrificed her only blanket for a shivering child, thereby exposing herself to illness.
