She was born into a family of peace. He was born into a world of violence. Together, they forged a small empire.
John McQueen was born at the height of the Old French War in 1759, the grandson of Jacobite rebel, Dugal McQueen. At the age of seven his father, Thomas McQueen, died, and John moved with his mother and new family to the fringes of the American frontier. He grew up fighting Indians, serving in militia campaigns, and carving homes out of the wilderness.
After the American Revolution, he moved to Madison County, Kentucky, and in October of 1788 married Nancy Crews, daughter of wealthy tobacco planter David Crews and his first wife Annie Magee. Together, they had at least five children who grew to adulthood, carved homes twice from the wilderness, one in Tennessee and another in Texas. Their children and grandchildren were instrumental in settling Tyler and Jasper Counties, many of them coming to Texas while it was under Spanish rule.
This long-awaited volume covers the vast history of this family from John’s birth in the colonies in 1759 to the death of John and Nancy’s last living grandchild James Polk McQueen in 1917. Included are family histories, family photographs, documents, maps, and a complete genealogical listing three generations past John and Nancy. Over 200 sources, much of which was primary source material including court, land, tax, military, and probate records, hard-to-find Bible records and interviews. Many unknown correlations between the Barclay, Taylor, Bean, and McQueen families are here detailed. A fine edition to round out the Metes & Bounds Series.
