The Scottish Clans and their Tartans, give the source of our name as follows: MacQueen (Gaelic) MacCuire for MacShuibbne, from N.Sweyn. Gaelic MacSwan. In Syke MacQueens.
The MacQueens are of Norse origin, from Iweyn or Suyne, rendered in Gaelic MacCuine or McShuibhne. A Sween McQueen signed the Clan Chattan Bond of 1609. Although latterly regarded as a sept of the Clan Chattes, they are more likely to be of the Clan Ronald origin. In the thirteenth century a family of MacSweens held lands in Kinteze, especially Castle Sween. In Syke we find the Gaelic name McSwain taking form of MacSweens, MacSwan and Swan in English.
Although originally but an offshot of the Hebridean MacQueens who owed allegiance to the Lord of the Isles, the MacQueens of Corrybrough, who settled in Strathdearn, may be said to have occupied the positions of the "Head of the haill (whole) name."
The MacQueens were known as Clan Rovan, the circumstance which the MacQueens left the West Coast and setteld in Strathdearn are stated to be as follows: Early in the Fifteenth century Malcolm Beg MacKintosh (10th of MacKintosh) married Mora MacDonald of Moidart and with the bride came, as was the custom, several of her kinsmen, who took up their abode near her new home. Among the followers were Revan MacMulmon MacAntus, of whom the Clan Revan are descended, and Dolan MacGillandrisch of whom the Clan Revan is descended.
Roderick Dee Revan MacQueen is said to have fought under MacKintosh at the battle of Harlaw in 1411. This was secured from England by Harry Sterling Queen at a cost of $25.00.
The Early History of the Family Tree
The immediate branch of the McQueen Family was a citizen of Tipperrary County of Ireland, and Charles McQueen was a private in the English Army and an honored magistrate of his native County, but accoding to the ruling of the English Parliment, no one of Scotch or Irish name could rank as a Commissioned Officer. So in order to receive this commission, Charles McQueen had to drop the prefix Mc from his original name, and became an English officer under the name of just CHARLES QUEEN. He was said to be a man of commanding presence and courage and discretion in the execution of his Official Trust, and by virtue of his New Official Position, and by an act of the English Parliment, he was entitled to enter free of cost (1400) acres of land in the Virginia Colony of America, while a private citizen or soldier of England, could only enter (400) acres. Now this is how, we as a people got the name of just QUEEN.
We find there are quite a number of emigrants coming to America from Ireland by the name of McQueen and McQuinn, and they tell us there are no people in Ireland by the name of just QUEEN. Now it was for this purpose of availing himself of entering the (1400) acres of land in America that caused CHARLES QUEEN and his young wife come to America in or near (1750), and they wended their way into this section of the Virginia Colony, in Harrison County of America, and located a homestead on the waters of Gnatty Creek at the mouth of Peeltree, a stream of (4) miles in length and selected land, later owned by old Judge Edwin S. Dunkin and at present owned by Porter Maxwell, and Ira Post heirs.
Whether CHARLES QUEEN entered the full (1400) acres of land or not, is not known. If he took out a Patten for the (1400) acres of land, it should have been recorded in the Clerk's Office (for Pattens), in Richmond, Virginia, and this all came about before the Revolutionary War.
There was a son born in 1752 to CHARLES QUEEN and his young wife while they were here in America, and was given the name of CHARLES QUEEN, JR., and they did not remain here for long in America, but returned to England, and CHARLES QUEEN, SR., soon died, and as it was the law of that country that the parents of children had to give their sons a trade of some kind, the mother of CHARLES QUEEN,JR., bound him out to the weaver's trade, and when he had served his time at his trade, he then had to serve time in the English army, so when he had reached his majority, and was a free man, he longed and desired to see the land of his birth, in America, so the son, CHARLES QUEEN, JR., returned to America in or near the year (1770), and took possession of the old homestead on Gnatty Creek at the mouth of Peeltree. At this time he was not married, but soon did marry Miss May Haley in 1773, a native of that country, and to this union (9) children were born.
CHARLES QUEEN,JR., died and was buried in the old homestead in an orchard, east of Clarksburg and Buckhannon Highway, opposite the Ira Post Mansion.
Of course after 1863 this land is now in the state of West Virginia, and the Clarksburg And Buckhannon Highway is now West Virginia state Rt 20

ROUGH DRAFT or WORKING PAPER of Preliminary information on ONE (of many) Moore families of Orange Co, NC. The area in which they lived was near the "Oaks" community on the present Alamance/Orange Co border. They are one of the closest Moore families to the location where Sterling Moore lived until 1799 which was just south of Haw Creek, also in the Hawfields. JAMES MOORE FAMILY of the central Hawfields (now Alamance Co area, living on Meadow Creek, Motts Creek and Little Cain Creek and Moccasin Creek, all east side of Haw River. NOTE: there are many missing pieces here. Can anyone fill any? Some preliminary research done years ago by a researcher hired by a Mr. F. Cirlot on James Moore of the south/central Hawfields area. According to undocumented information of Mr. Cirlot, this James was believed to have been born about 1752 in Virginia, said to have come from Brunswick and Lunenburg Cos VA, through Halifax Co, VA (early 1780's) to Orange Co. NC about 1793 or before (Note: Research into Brunswick. And Lunenburg Cos., VA shows a group of Moores living on Cedar Creek and Crooked Run Creek, which straddled the borders of Brunswick and Lunenburg from about 1750, beginning with a Robert Moore who acquired with HUGE landholdings along Cedar Creek and Crooked Run Creeks. There are land sales between him and people named James, Robert (Jr?), Valentine and William Moore in VA, names which later show up in Orange Co, NC, and also to William Martin and to Elizabeth and John Weaver. Although no connection to Orange Co. Moores has yet been proved, this area is a possible earlier location for this group. Mr. Cirlot believed (note that this is his speculation, but he freely admitted he did not have proof) that this James Moore family of Orange may have been descended from an earlier James Moore who was b 1693 New Kent Co, VA and his wife Agnes, who parents of the following children: James (b1718), Elizabeth (Could she have married John Weaver who, with wife Elizabeth, is also a purchaser of the Robert Moore tracts in Lunenburg and Brunswick Cos, VA?) Robert (b abt 1727) Valentine (b abt 1735 and perhaps other children, Henry and William, which names also show up in the Brunswick/Lunenburg Co. VA records. There is absolutely no proof (or even a hint of proof other than similar names) that descendants of the New Kent Co group ended up in Brunswick/Lunenburg/Halifax and later Orange Co. NC., and Mr. Cirlot readily admitted he was working on "hunches". But similarly named individuals are found briefly in Halifax Co. VA in the mid 1780's, and also in Caswell Co, NC where a Valentine Moore witnessed a deed betw. John TARPLEY and Phillip Thomas 1789. I don't know if he's connected to the Orange group or not.) But research into New Kent Co, VA Moore families, and also into determining the identity of the Robert Moore who purchased the large lands in Brunswick and Lunenburg Cos are important ideas for further research. Whatever his origin, Mr. Cirlot believed that the James Moore who was born about 1752 VA (where a wife Mary is shown on some of the VA deeds) were said to have come to the Hawfields area of Orange/Alamance Counties, NC where James died, according to Mr. Cirlot, around 1805. Due to the appearance of the name Valentine among the Moores in these areas, Mr. Cirlot believed they were located earlier along the Cedar Creek/Crooked Run Creek area of Brunswick/Lunenburg Co. VA border area, then found in Halifax Co, VA in the early 1780's, and then moved to Orange Co, NC approximately 1790. While people with these names ARE found in these areas of VA, there is no information at all (other than the appearance of the name "Valentine" among them) that they are linked to the Moore family of Hawfields in Orange Co, NC. Proof, information or clues are being sought to confirm or disprove this migration path. (NOTE: I have found NO will and no loose papers for an administration of an estate for a James Moore around this time in Orange Co. records, although Mr. Cirlot believed that James died around 1805 in Orange Co.). Mr. Cirlot believed James to be the father of the following: 1. James (said to have become a large land owner in Orange and Alamance), oldest child. m 1797 Orange Co. Elizabeth LASHLEY (d/o Barnabas Lashley, a neighbor in the Hawfields), with Wm. GRIMES, bondsman. (Orange Co. marriage bond). James and Elizabeth Lashley Moore are believed to be parents of: a) James (no info) b) Nancy who m Wm. Sykes 1815 with Wm.Rigsbee, bond c) Patsy m Hosea Smith d) Robert e) Margaret m John Jones (bond Thomas Jones) f) Sally m James Crutchfield 1828 Or.Co. with Walker/Walter Parish, bond. g) John (no info) Note: a Robert Moore (I believe James son) wrote a will in 1835 in Orange Co mentioning sibings Margaret Jones, Sally Crutchfield and John. He also mentions Patsy Smith. Witnesses of Robert's will are Henry O'Daniel, Jesse O'Daniel (who are neighbors) and Eliz. "X" Moore (possibly his mother, Eliz. Lashley Moore). Executors: John Jones and John Moore. 2. Mary married 4 Dec. 1794 in Orange, Wm. BROOKS (James Moore, bond). She had at least one child, Thomas Brooks.) 3. Ann said to have m 1792 JOHN PUGH (NOTE: One John Pugh was an immediate neighbor to Sterling Moore in Orange Co). Orange County Court records reveal a suit by Ann Moore against John Pugh, and a land sale of 10 acres on the south side of Haw Creek in 1799 from John Pugh to Ann Moore adjoining GARDNER (I believe the "Gardner" to be William GORDON, who had land about one tract away from Sterling MOORE). John Pugh, William Brooks, John Kennedy and Thomas Atkinson and some Crutchfields had lands very close to Sterling Moore in Orange. James Johnson and Esiah X Person wit this deed. James Johnson/Johnston was an immediate neighbor of Sterling Moore and the person to whom Sterling sold his land when he left Orange Co. in 1799. Regarding Ann Moore Pugh, somewhere I have a court recorc for legal name changes in NC which indicates that 3 Moore individuals named Moore in Orange Co had their surnames legally changed to Pugh around 1792, the date that Mr. Cirlot believed Ann married John Pugh. Perhaps these were children of Ann's who had their names changed after the marriage. 4. Robert, said to be a locomotive engineer. No further info. 5. Valentine Moore of "Hawfields" b abt 1775 in VA or NC m Nancy LASHLEY, sister of Elizbeth Lashley who married Valentine's brother James, both said to be daus of Barnabas Lashley, supposedly a RW soldier of PA, but living next door in the Hawfields? Does anyone know Barnabas or his origins?. Was he connected to a Thomas Lapsley who also had land nearby? Wm. Grimes was bondsman for this marriage. Children of Valentine and Elizabeth Lashley: a. James b 1795 Orange, d 1875 in/near Graham, Alamance Co. Had a son named James Valentine Moore. b 1828. b. Valentine Jr. m 1838 Orange, Louise WARD, with George Cash, bond. Valentine Jr is said to have gone to Montgomery Co. Alabama but to have died in Orange Co. NC. No further record. c. Three (unnamed) daus one of whom was named Margaret Valentine Moore and was said to have m. a __________ Farmer. There are a number of land records for these Moores along Meadow Creek, Mottes Creek, Moccasin Creek and Little Caine Cr (This the Caine Cr that was on EAST side of the Haw River, southeastern part of Hawfields in area betw. Sterling Moore on Haw Creek and the Chatham County line. It is sometimes called Little Cain Creek. Note that this is NOT the same as the more "famous" CANE CREEK which is on the west side of the Haw River just north of Chatham Co. line and which was the location and center of the Cane Creek Quaker community). The location of these Moores is slightly east/southeast of Sterling Moore, perhaps a mile or two away. There are records for a number of O'Daniels, Christmas, Grimes and Lashley in this immediate area and with these Moores. ---------- There are a number of other Moore groups nearby in Orange county, however, who's relation, if any, to Sterling or to James, has not been determined includingÉ 1. Very shadowy references to "Moore's former cabin", and to a corner "where John Moore formerly lived" near Mebane in the northern Hawfields 2. Additional references to a shadowy Moore living near Ossippe area on the west side of Haw River, northern Alamance Co. today 3. Moores living along Stoney Creek/Laughlin's Creek of present northwestern Alamance Co. area. Their presence in the area is believed to predate the appearance of actual records for them. There are people named Robert, John, James and Thomas Moore in this area relationships not determined. The area is north of Ossippee. 4. One William Moore has land south of James Moore and in the Hawfields area. 5. One John Moore appears on the east side of Haw River, and adjoining the Chatham Co. line and Collins Creek. He appears near and closely associated with David McSwain. There are many land transactions in this area between a number of different John Moores, and a James Moore. It is likely that the John Moore, who had a Revolutionary War pension stating he was born in 1754 in Brunswick Co. Virginia, moved to Orange Co. NC about 1772, served from Orange Co, then moved to Rowan Co, and 4 years later to Rutherford Co, NC and eventually to York Co. SC where he died, is somehow related to this family. There is also the will of one John Moore, dated 1800, who's wife is Clary associated with the same group of Moores. 6. Horse Creek/Little River area Moores (now present northern Durham Co. near Flat Creek). Known records begin with a John Moore who got land there in 1757. There are several different John Moores as well as a James Moore, and an Ashel Moore associated with this group. 7. New Hope Creek area MooresÉ.again many of the same names, including John Moore. This is probably south-central Orange Co. today. 8. William Moore got land in 1750's on Northeast fork of New Hope Creek. His origin and family are not known. He is probably the William Moore who's name is found on the 1755 tax list of Orange. Also, land "formerly entered by William Moore" is mentioned by a later enterer in the area of Bucksquarter Creek, which is just east of present Hillsborough, and very near another creek identified on the Markham map as "Moore's Creek". It is not known if he's the same William Moore of New Hope. Bucksquarter Creek is east of Hillsborough and north of Eno River. 9. A Richard Moore, Quaker, from Exeter Mtg, Pa, spent about 10 years in Orange between about 1757-1767 (according to records of Cane Creek Quaker Meeting), when he moved on to Writesboro, GA He registered his arrival and departure in Cane Creek Quaker Meeting records, and also the record of disownments for several of his children, probably for out-going (ie Non-Quaker) marriages were recorded. No land records of any kind have been found for him so it is not known where he was living. Perhaps he is associated with one of the other Moores of the old Orange Co. area, but it has not been determined which, if any. There's a large website concerning this Richard Moore and his descendants, most of which are pretty well known. He is believed to have been a descendant of James Moore, blacksmith for William Penn in Philadelphia, and Merion (now Delaware Co) Pa. There are lots of missing parts in James Moore's family information. The man who gave me the information in tiny bits and pieces was I think very elderly and just left a lot out, and took a lot more on faith. I strongly believe there were ties to other Moores in this part of Orange/Alamance, and Sterling Moore is a good bet to be connected somehow due to his being the neighbor of John PUGH, William Brooks and Crutchfields There is a possible tie to early Moores in Montgomery Co. NC (a burnt records county), where an early (1783) William Moore appears, as well as 2 Thomas Moores, a Valentine Moore, and a Jesse and James. (The Jesse and James Moore of Montgomery Co. NC are believed to be from Lunenburg, or rather to have gone there FROM NC). The William Moore of Montgomery Co, NC died in 1801 (or 1807) in Rowan. Some people believe he is Sterling Moore's father, but there has never been any proof of that at all other than the appearance and similarity of the name Sterling or Starling McDannel, who was named as a "son in law" and executor (together with the widow Sarah) of William Moore's Rowan Co, NC will.
Notes from Mary Ellen Childress Rouse re Davis Family Cemetery in Jackson County MS (now in George Co. MS) On the day the Rogers man carried Skidmore and me to the cemetery spot we went back to his aunt’s trailer to see if she and her husband could tell us who was buried there. She said “I know one person buried there was Mary Jane Cochran’s granddaddy.” Mary Jane was Aunt Citty Davis Cochran’s daughter-in-law. I learned that the man she was referring to was GEORGE DAVID DAVIS. I believe she also mentioned JANE. Later I was helping a couple who was doing Holland research and we went to the home of Eley and Ellen Davis Parker’s home. I asked them who was buried there. Mrs Parker told me that she knew “Old Cap Davis” who was buried there and went on the tell me that he was the first one to come here. He had a bunch of negroes – slaves in that swamp. They called him “Cap” for Captain and this is the only name I know him by. I don’t know his real name. This man had to be John S. Davis, Sr. She also told me Jane and Sarah were buried these. Whether Jane and Sarah were daughter of John S. or George David or the wife of John S. I don’t know. I do know that the location of the cemetery is behind an oil field that belonged to Jeff Davis, the son of George David. I finally came up with the four above mentioned. John S. Davis, Sr. George David Davis Sarah - possibly daughter of George David Jane Or as you have written the ladies could have been the wife and daughter of John S Davis, Jr. No doubt George D. Davis inherited the land from his daddy originally and Jeff Davis, George David son, still had a portion of the land during his life time. Later I tried seven times to make you a copy of the picture I took at the Davis Cemetery location. The original is not good. It was dark, but note the elevated spot. The men are my nephew and Mr. Rogers who helped us get there. Another strange thing. The cemetery is supposedly on Section 12. The original grant to Section 12 was given to John Ward. William Childress bought “three hundred acres on the hill”. Thomas Thaddeus, William’s son, sold part of Section 12 to James Cowart, Jr. in 1860. I have a copy of the deed. http://www.English-America.com/index.htmlFPRIVATE
