In Reply to: Murdock McQueen of EFP, Jackson LA by John H. Poole, Jr. of 161

Here are my conclusion so far, that I and two cousins have settled upon.

John McQueen and Nancy Bumpus had four children as follows:

1. Margaret Ann McQueen, d. before Aug. 1865
2. Norman McQueen, b. 15 Oct. 1820, Wilson, E. Feliciana Parish, LA; d. 17
Apr 1902, Wilson, E. Feliciana Parish, LA
3. MURDOCK MCQUEEN, b. 5 Apr 1825, Wilson, E. Feliciana Parish, LA; d. 16
Aug 1905, Wilson, E. Feliciana Parish, LA
4. John(Johnnie)McQueen, b. 25 Dec 1828; d. 22 Jun 1897.
Notes for John(Johnnie) McQueen. This John was a "workaholic". Never

I have placed a number of McQueen ancestors in
Cumberland County, NC thru my internet research. The 1790 Census shows the
following McQueens in Cumberland County:
Norman McQueen, Timothy McQueen, Daniel McQueen. I also have Masonic Lodge
info dated Nov 14, 1801 from Fayetteville, NC that shows A. McQueen, John
McQueen. The Lodge info dated Sept 7, 1804 lists Alexander McQueen, John
The Cumberland County Tax records in 1815 lists Alexander McQueen, Donald
McQueen, Daniel McQueen, Donald McQueen and Neill McQueen.
The marriage bond of John McQueen and Nancy Bumpus shows Cumberland County,
NC and was dated Dec 1812. It was signed by John McQueen and Norman McQueen.
This Norman may have been John's father but I'm not sure. On the 1820 census
of Cumberland County there is listed a John MacQueen Sr. Our info says that
John McQueen and Nancy Bumpus came to Louisiana by wagon in October 1818 so
the John MacQueen Sr. may have been our John's father. Don't know for sure.
The 1820 census of Cumberland County also lists Alexn. McQueen and Neill

The Cumberland County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions indicates in the
July 1779 Court that Norman McQueen was given notice to depart the state
within 60 days apparently for refusing to sign The Highlander's Oath.

On Feb 4, 1800, the Court lists the following McQueens owing the estate of
Daniel Campbell: Norman McQueen, Alexander McQueen and Daniel McQueen. A
list of people attending the estate sale of Daniel Campbell lists John

I found this on Rootweb/efel/la.

John is from SC not NC, born in 1782.!!

I haven't looked there. He must have passed through NC to have married


1850 LA E FEL Parish Census

I have found some great stuff on Nancy Bumpus McQueen, after I made this inquery. I thought I would post it here
to bless other kin. Her ancestry back to
The 1St Thanksgiving.

1. Nancy Bumpus & John McQueen
mar. in Fayetteville, N.C. 1812
2. Robert Bumpus & Elizabeth Shaw
settled in Cumberland, Co. N.C.
3. John Bumpus (#2) & unknown wife

all above in "Colonial & Kindred" Book
all below on

4. Job Bumpus & Abigail ?

5. John Bumpus & Sarah Hunter

6. Edward Bompasse & Hannah Annable
Came over on the "Fortune", 2nd ship of Pilgrims to
Plymouth Colony, Mass. Celebrated the
first American Thanksgiving.

Hope you like it!
