[503] from the 1850 federal census of Tippah Co. MS: Meredith Queen 26M, Sarah L. 30F, Adelina F. 6F, Jacob F. 3M, David M. 1M.  Not sure if Sarah is his first wife - I also found a marriage bond for a "Merida" Queen, possibly Meredith/Maraday Queen dated 25 Sept. 1843 in Lincoln Co. NC, to a Lavina Summey, Solomon Hovis surety, in "Marriage Bonds of Tryon and Lincoln Counties, NC," by Curtis Bynum, 1962 (SPL).  I believe that Sarah L. and Lavina are the same person.
