Comments:
I am great-great-great grandson of Henry McQueen mentioned on page 47 of the 1890 History of Oceana County. He died about 1864 before he was drafted into the Civil War. Henry registered for the Civil War, naming Hart as his residence. Henry moved to Oceana County with his older brother John. Henry was married to Hannah O'Neil of Canada and had two sons: John W. McQueen and James Henry McQueen. Hannah remarried to Joseph Terrion and had another son: Joseph A. Terrion Jr. Any info you can find on Henry (i.e. death record, location of burial[possibly Oceana Center Cemetery in Hart) would be greatly appreciated.

We are living in the old Merten bed and breakfast. We were just looking for some info or pictures of our house. We have a ledger we found with people who have bought the house through many many years but were hoping for some history of the house and pictures. This site is interesting with some great pictures. My husband owned the house in crystal valley that was the store and bank in the 1800s. We have alot of the pictures that you do. We also have an original showcase from the store. We are trying to sell it, we do not have any room for it. The top piece of beveled glass blew off during our move but other than that it is pretty. So if anyone is interested let us know. Thanks, Amy
