Re: Wm. McQueen, b. ca. 1792 NJ
My McQueen family all heralded from Lincroft, NJ.Until recently I still referred to this area as Colts Neck.
My grt grandfather George W. McQueen married a Mary J. Tice and had 14 children.He was a farmer if I remember correctly.
My grandmother Eva May McQueen Behrman of South Belmar now known as Lake Como, NJ is a couple months shy of 100 birthday.
Her brother John B. McQueen, 94 yrs, just past away on July 29, 2006 - John was predeceased by his wife Julia L. Gorsegner, and two sons Jack and Jay - they were from Fairhaven.John's passing makes my Eva the sole survivor of her clan.
From memory:Sarah, Lydia, Ida, Clarence, John, Eva, George, William, more boys, sorry I dont have my gedcom readily available.There was a child that died at birth, another at 5? in a sledding accident.Sound familiar?
I am desperately seeking the relative [cousin?] who is responsible for printing out an extensive 17 generation McQueen family tree - it dated back to 1700's.My cousin gave a copy of it to Eva, in turn, Gram gave it to me.I lost this and other valuable info to water damage via hurricane.I was told this person may be an Audry Petrie of Rome?, NY, where some of our McQueens relocated to.
Sound familiar?Please write.Pam
