Biographical / Historical
This collection concerns the Ashe Morrison Hyatt families of Jackson and Macon counties. Mary Candace Morrison Ashe (1874-1948) grew up in the Iotla community of Macon County and married Felix Monroe Ashe (1875-1933). They raised their children on Brooks Branch Road off Greens Creek Road in the Savannah area of Jackson County where Felix grew up.
Ransom Lee Hyatt (1862-1947) was born in Qualla, North Carolina. He married Dora Cooper Hyatt (1872-1907) and, in 1909, Cordelia Wilson Hyatt (1877-1944). He was a farmer and a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Ransom and Dora, and then Cordelia, raised their children on Shoal Creek Road in what was Qualla and is now Whittier. A child of Ransom and Dora, Nathan Eugene Hyatt (1897-1937) married Clara Ashe (1902-1970), daughter of Felix and Mary. Nathan and Clara moved to Snohomish County, Washington in 1930.
