Hi Rita, Betty, and Paulette, and everyone else out
I'm not sure if our Jerry's are going to be the same
or not...I'm kind of confused. I do know that there
were two Jerry's in North Georgia during this time
period. One lived in Rabun Co with Hence, and one
lived in Union County with Isaac and Ruth Queen (1850
census). Both the Jerry's were about the same age. I
had thought my Jerry was the one that lived with Isaac
and Ruth in Union County. After the 1850 census,
though, this Jerry seems to disappear, until the 1900
census, when he pops up with his children Oscar( born
in Oct 1876), James (born in May 1879), Kimsey (1886),
and Lillie (1890) back in Hiawassee (now Towns
I do know from Margarette's tombstone, that she was
born on Sep 27, 1857, and died on Mar 30, 1895, at the
age of 37. The only reason I know anything about her
is this tombstone, which says she is the wife of J. M.
Queen. There is an unmarked tombstone next to her
Now, what is confusing me is that you are saying the
Jerry from Rabun Co. also married a Margaret, and also
had a son named Jim (James). Is that a big
coincidence or what?
Oscar Queen is my husband's great-grandfather, so that
is how I relate. I do not know from any family
sources what Jerry's siblings names were, or what his
parents names were. Back until Jerry, I have a family
Bible and those census records. But as I said, they
are rather confusing with the disappearing act.
Has anyone found any other mention of Jerry from Union
County between 1850 and 1900?
I'm so confused....
