My name is Marva Queen and I have been tracing my history of my family James Mack Queen born 1895 in Annapolis , md. His parent's name were Stephen Queen born about 1850 in Maryland and his mother Annie Parker-Queen born about 1876, ? Va. I know that my great grandparents were from Annapolis also. They are Stephen Queen and Hannah Queen.I have hit a road block since my father's side of the family has passed on and i can't seem to get pass my great grand parents name to find a date of them to trace further back since i am finding so many Queens in Annapolis. Is there someway that you can give me some guidance to follow back to them and hopefully to the slavery part.
I know both of my great grand parents are listed on the Md. Census as mulatto, so i am assuming that is the beginning.
Any help would truly be appreciated. This is a meaningful search for me since i did not get to know him but since his passing i have managed to find a sister in Annapolis who i never new existed.
Thank you for any guidance you can give me.
