Descendants of Charles Queen\MacQueen

Fourth Generation

12. Charles A. Queen (Armstead Queen , Charles Queen , Charles Queen/MacQueen ) was born 1800 in Peel Tree Creek, Johnstown, West Virginia. He died 18 Jul 1870 on Hacker's Creek, Upshur Co., West Virginia and was buried in Peck's Run, Upshur County, West Virginia.

Charles A. Queen married Miss Charlotte Jeffers Bush in 1817. He then made his way through the forests and over the Rooting Creek Mountains on to the head waters of Pecks Run, a small stream that flowed East eight miles into the Buckhannon River. There he purchased a farm of 150 acres of land all in woods,
not a stick amiss of Cathern McCall for $1.00 per acre, amounting to $150.00.
He paid some in cash and got a Title Bond for the farm, leaving him badly in debt. This land had a wonderful rich soil, covered with a luxuriant forest of a great variety of fine timber.

Many Poplar trees, seven feet in diameter and a hundred feet tall, and lots of Black Walnut trees from 3 feet to 5 feet in diameter and thousands of fine Red Maple or Sugar Maple trees and all kinds of other timbers that were adapted to that rich soil. In fact all down that stream from it's head to the mouth was covered with fine sugar trees, where was thousands of pounds of sugar and hundreds of gallons of fine maple syrup in this wilderness section with no roads except trails and pathways up and down that stream and but 2 or 3 families along that stream. Here he built a log cabin and settled down with his first wife and reared a family of (10) children into the Third generation of the Queen family.

After 20 years in this wilderness, and with a large family to support and a mortgage against his farm, and scarcely any money in those days, and no market for anything he could raise, he became discouraged and decided he could not pay off the mortgage and support his family, so he made an agreement with his son Stewart, that if he would pay off the mortgage and provide for the family and make a home for them, that he would sign the Title Bond over to him, so he turned his farm and title over to his son, Stewart Lytle Queen. So he cared for them seven years, after which six of the family got married and his mother died, the Charles A. Queen bought a little farm on the head of Charity Fork where he built a log cabin and batched and taught school for a few years right in his house. Then he married Miss Abigail White, November 8th, 1861, no children were born to this union. Then his youngest son, Benton Queen, enlisted as a soldier in the Federal Army in the Great Civil War, at the age of 17.

Three of his son-in-laws, and three of his grandsons were soldiers in the Federal or Union Army and fought in some very severe battles and all were honorably discharged in 1865 and returned home without a wound, but one grandson, Albert Queen, who died while in the service. Then he sold his farm and moved to Rural Dale, on Hacker's Creek, Upshur County, West Virginia in 1866 and died in 1870 at the age of 70 years and was buried on Peck's Run in a private cemetery on his old home farm by the grave of his first wife, two daughters and several grandchildren.

William, while on his way to San Francisco, California, to start home in 1853, traveling many hundreds of miles through a mountainous region, took sick and was cared for at the home of Jacob C. Spores, who later sent John B. Queen a draft for $1,355.75, plus exchange $54.00, making a total of $1,410.00 in gold by Adams Express Company. This was sent in a tin-can about 3 and 1/2 inches high by almost 3" in diameter addressed to John B. Queen, Buckhannon, Upshur County, Virginia, which can still be plainly seen scratched, or written, on the can. A valise full of clothing, a buckskin purse, solid gold watch, thin case of soft gold, open face, key wind; gold ring,etc., were also sent. In Mr. Spores expense account during William's illness, and last expenses is one item $20.00 for digging the grave, $14.30 for labor and lumber and $12.00 for making the coffin.
