Notes for William Queen: BIOGRAPHY: Farmer. William and Margaret came to Bladen Co., NC from VA before 1753. By 1770 , he had sold most of his land and moved to WilkesCo., GA. By 1783, he had moved back to Rutherford Co., NC. He bought land in Rutherford Co. 1788 and in 1799 bought 50 acres on First B road in Golden Valley. "old" William Queen - PATRIARCH of the Rutherford Co., NC QUEEN CLAN: 1720 - "old William" born in VA about 1720 (age 70 in 1790, at time of the appeal of his rejected Rev. War pension claim. See under 1790. 1753 - is listed on a land entry in Bladen Co., NC dated 14 Nov. 1753. Said to have lived on Anderson's Path. (I haven't been able to find the location of Anderson Path.) Therefore h d moved to NC by this date. 1754 - witnessed deed in Anson Co. NC. N.B.: Anson Co. was created from Bladen Co. in 1750. 1754 - mentioned in a Bladen Co., NC survey book: "Surveyed for John Teer - 200 acres in Bladen Co. on a prong of Bear Creek including the place where William Queen did live - 1-19-1754 ." In 1754, Bladen Co.'s western part included present-day Robeson and Moore counties. Anson Co.,formed in 1750 from Bladen, lay just west, and had no western border in1754. There ar e 23 Bear Creeks in NC today, making it problematic to locate this land with certainty. However, only one present-day Bear Creek seems to lie in old Bladen Co. - it rises in south Randolph Co.,and flows SE into northern Moore Co., where it flows into Deep River.This land lies just east of the present-day Montgomery County line. 16Oct., Anson Co. deed - Edmond Lilly to John Lilly, land N side of PeeDee.
