Hi Terri: I am familier with your family group, as there is some info out there on Nannie Hurst Quein.

I believe we all may eventually link up, I don't need to tell you uncommon the surname Quein is! My mother Eleanor Quein Turner was born in Cherry Hill Md. The youngest of 7 and the only one left from her generation. Her immediate line is traceable to Robert Quein 1820-1904. I believe his father was James Quein who lived in Honeybrook, Chester Co. Pa. The town was then known as Waynesburg, and he helped found the Methodist Church there, in 1823. I have collected family groupings in Chester Co. and Cecil Co. Md. and know they all connect.

Mother always claimed that the name Quein was 'Holland' Dutch. I find that hard to believe because 'Q' surnames are very rare for the dutch or germans. I think the name may have been changed at some point, but at this point am not sure. It may be French huguenot, or Orange Irish, time will tell.

The records consistantly spell the name Quinn, Quynn, etc.,and I do know this incorrect.

I am glad to know there are more of us out there, please keep in touch. Jim
