Well guys, I don't have much and I am in a real hurry but I will put a bug
into you ears to think about till I can gather my research and give more
details if I havew them. I see everyone mentioning Tenn and I always wonder
if someone will come up with my line. But every e-mail is minus names that I
have ties with. Well, maybe I can now help someone else.
b. July 11, 1823 in North Carolina, Rutherford or Lincoln Co.
m. 1st wife Sarah Lavinia Summey in Lincoln Co. N.C. on Sept 25, 1843
m. 2nd. Winnifred A. Neal from Grenada Co, Mississippi
Died; April 27 1907 in Hardeman Co., Tenn
These Queens left Lincoln Co., N.C. and went to Tippah Co, Mississippi.
With them went Maradays parents George Queen and his wife Nancy. They both
died in Miss. and were buried in New Hope Cemetary, Benton Co., Miss. George
died in 1877 and Nancy died in 1854. Maraday Queen was quite well know in
the town he lived in and was President of the Board of Supervisions of Benton
Sometime after 1876 ( I assume probably after his fathers death in 1877) he
moved his family to Hardeman Co,Tenn where his wife Winnifred died on Dec 17,
1905 and he died on April 27, 1907. He is buried in the town of Grand
Junction, Hardeman Co., Tenn.
Hopefully this will help a bit or spurn someone to tell their information. I
love all of your information that is shared. You all know so much. Queens
are top notch -A+ super stars. Have great days one and all.
Am looking forward to see if any Tn Queens are related. Wendy
