Descendants of Charles Queen\MacQueen

Fifth Generation

48. Stewart Litle Queen (Charles A. Queen , Armstead Queen , Charles Queen , Charles Queen/MacQueen) was born 19 Apr 1822 in Chariott's Fork, Harrison County, West Virginia.

Stewart Litle Queen was a very hard working man, and very industrious, working early and late. He was a fine stone cutter and chimney builder, and a great farmer and grain raiser. He soon paid off the mortgage on the farm, in 1849. He purchased 85 additional acres to his farm, in order to give him a right of way out to the public road, from a Mr. Moody. In 1853 he purchased the old Jacob Radabaugh farm of 135 acres down on the main highway. These three tracts of land all joined and laid in a body, which made him a fine rich farm of 365 acres of land, where he lived and died.

He lived in three counties, while living, Harrison, Lewis and Upshur, and 2 states, Old Virginia and West Virginia, and died on the same farm. He was a very energetic, thorough going man and of great forethought, of farming and road building and engineering.

He graded and built the road from the mouth of Peel Tree Run across a mountain to Johnstown, on Rooting Creek, a distance of about 4 miles, and then from below Johnstown up Rooting Creek and across to Jesse's Run, then from Johnstown across quite a mountain on to Lost Creek, then a road from Hodgeville down Peck's Run to Phillippi and Buckhannon Pike, which are all on the same grades, and with but few changes and are good roads today, 1941.

The Upshur County Road Commission made him road overseer to work out all the roads in Warren District Township in Upshur County, West Virginia.

He bought a large circle sawmill, the first of its kind ever to be installed in West Virginia, from Augusta County, Virginia, and planted it on his farm in 1856. He built himself a two-story house-18 ft. wide and 48 ft. long, with 10-rooms in 1859-on his 365 acre farm on Peck's Run, Upshur County, West Virginia.

He built the Mt. Zion U. B. Church on Peck's Run and built four of the first free school houses in West Virginia after the Civil War in 1866-1867.

He was Captain of Company "A" of the 133rd Regiment of the West Virginia Militia for many years, before the Civil War. His Company was armed and pressed into the service of the Union Army till the close of the war. He and his good wife were both fine Christians and were faithful members of their church.

They donated largely to the construction and building of the U.B. Mt. Zion Church on Peck's Run, a U.B. Church at Volga, and to the U. B. Church at Buckhannon, Upshur County, W.Virginia. They gave to the Buckhannon Academy $1200. Their house was always a home for the Ministers.

They were very devoted Christians and daily read God's Holy Book, and prayed with their children around the family altar. They talked to their children and taught them the Ten Commandments of God, and His promised blessings to those that love Him and follow His commandments. Oh, it was a sacred home and will long be remembered by their children and all who knew them. Yes, their influence for good will go down through the ages to come and reach up to Heaven.

51. Benton Queen (Charles A. Queen , Armstead Queen , Charles Queen , Charles Queen/MacQueen ) was born 22 May 1844. He died 24 Sep 1933.

PLACE: Union Army, Civil War

It is said that Benton Queen was the man who fired the last shot of the Civil War at Appomattox (C.H.) on the day that General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant. When the war between the states broke out he volunteered at Buckhannon at the age of seventeen on December 2, 1861. His first battle was that of Droop Mountain. Early in his military life he participated in the engagements at Maryland Heights, Smickers Gap, under General Trusette Milroy. Later he served under General Phillip Sheridan. He also served in Co. B, 10th Virginia Infantry, with David C. Morgan as his Commanding Officer. After Captain Morgan was released he served under Captain Columbus Gould. He spent most of his time in the Shenandoah Valley. Later was transferred to around Richmond and made a member of the 24th Army Corps under General Ord. He was detached and made a member of the 24th Corps "Sharp Shooters" with which outfit he remained until the close of the war. He participated in twelve major engagements during the war, and loved to tell of one which is quite interesting, both to history and to the Queen family, which took place on April 9, 1865, at the time he fired the last shot of the American Civil War. Quoting his own story: "We had marched all night long the night before the eventful day and with the coming of dawn we stopped near the town of Appomattox Court House to get breakfast, for we were tired and hungry. Before we had time to prepare anything to eat; however, word was received that General Lee was trying to break through our lines and we were double-timed to the scene of action. Sharpshooters go in front of the line of battle and we were ordered to silence a battery which was located near a house, the residence of a man named Tibb. In making our way through the brush towards the house, two Irishmen of sharpshooters were captured and according to our Company, they had been taken to General Lee, who questioned them about the number of infantrymen drawn up. Not daring to tell him, because they were sharpshooters, and a sharpshooter did not get treated very well, they told Lee that they belonged to the infantry, thus making him believe that the Union Men were near. We kept advancing toward this battery. Arriving at the house, we were so located that we had a good view of the entire outlay, and our commander, Major Cooley, of New York, led us right to the house. He started some of us around the right side of the building and others around the left side. I was on the left side and just as soon as I reached the platform of a well on this side, I spied a "Johnny" making his way through the brush. He was getting away as fast as possible and I might have for I was considered a fair shot at that time. Just after this we received the order ot cease firing and that shot of mine at the "Johnny" was the last one fired in that section which was just over the hill from Appomattox (C.H.) where Lee soon afterwards surrendered. We sat down under a tree to examine a knapsack belonging to a "Johnny" and some Confederate soldiers came over and talked with us until ordered to their Companies for the surrender."

Benton Queen was the last commander of Morris Post No. 50, Grand Army of the Republic, a position which he held for several years. He married immediately after being mustered out and spent all his life in the section of the state in Lewis, Harrison and neighboring counties of West Virginia. During his Army life, he saw three years, nine months and ten days of actual service and during that time he was in the hospital one time for treatment. He cast his first ballot in 1868 when he voted for General Grant for President of the United States. SOURCE: Queen Family Book; written by Stephen Post Queen.
