Angus McQuien (the family actually spelled the name
McQuien rather than the more usual McQueen, which may signify that they
originated from Ayr rather than Skye, or not... I can't really
say that I know)
was a brother of Richard White's 2-great grandmother Mary McQuien
Autry. Mary was Richard's mother's mother's mother's
mother. Angus, Mary, and another brother, John A. McQuien, were
sons of John D. McQuien who arrived in Sumter County before 1840, and
Sarah McMullen, who apparently died before 1840. John D. and
Sarah were married in Cumberland County, North Carolina, on 29
Angus McQueen was enrolled on 1 March 1862, at
Americus, Sumter County, Georgia, and served as a corporal in Companies
A and B of the 11th Georgia Volunteer Artillery Battalion which was
called the Sumter Flying Artillery, and also Cutts Flying Artillery.
