We've traced our McQueen ancestors back to Samuel McQueen (1750 - 1794) of Johnson County, Tennessee. Mary Floy Katzman has copies of his land grants in what used to be Wilkes and Washington Counties, NC, but is now in Tennessee.
Several books mention these McQueens:
The following list of McQueens is from a book entitled "The Original Scots Colonists of Early America 1612- 1783" by David Dobson. It's a list of Scottish passengers to America.
"Transported" means that the person was involuntarily transported and "shipped" means that the person was traveling voluntarily. Jacobites believed that only the descendants of Scottish King James had a legitimate claim to the throne of Scotland. (Jacob is Latin for James.) Covenanters are Presbyterians who signed a covenant pledging to oppose other religions. Kings didn't always tolerate such beliefs, so those people were "transported" from Great Britain as punishment for their political and religious beliefs. See Why So Many Scots Came to America for a thumbnail description of this history.
