Just a quick note to let you know my husbands Aunt Maxine (who lives in Schuyler County) has discovered in their Brown Co Records, a listing for an Estate in 1858, for a first name very similar to "our missing" Elnora QUEEN. She is going to try to get over there Thursday of next week to try and look up these records and copy them for us, "if" it looks like it is her! We will keep you posted as we "slowly but surely" document this family it seems has never been researched before, and when we have put as many pieces of this puzzle together as we can, we will submit them to the Brown Co Historical Society.
May I please ask you to do 3 Census Look-Up's for me concerning this family from your 1870 Census Index. Just do it for me at your convience.
James QUEEN M62
William QUEEN M71
I am trying to figure out if Preston and Sarah (Queen) Bell had any children, none in the 1860 census, and none in the 1880 census, so if their are none in the 1870 census, they must not have had any children.
I will ask for a couple of 1860 census look up's later, it seems to be the only census's I can find 2 other of the married daughters in, and I do not find them in your cemetery index, but would just like to have them one time in the census for documentation.
Maxine has been over to the Historical Society, and they have no information on this QUEEN Family, no record of anyone ever having contacted them even trying to research them, so "it is about time" and we are doing our best to try to get this done, the right way, so there will be a record of this family for future researchers.
Thank You Very Much For Your Help,
