    • Rev. Charles Nicholas Queen, son of Stewart Litle Queen and Anna Post Queen, was born Feb.17th, 1861. His father said, many times he was called to preach, but was limited in education and so handicapped that he was not prepared to enter the ministry, but often said he hoped and prayed that he might rear a son to take his place.

      He was a great student of the Scriptures, and as the number (7) appeared to be a round or complete number in the Scriptures, he was a fervent believer in the ruling hand of Kind Providence; so when his seventh son (CHARLES NICHOLAS) was born, his father and mother set about to give him an early education and prepare him for the ministry. His mother would often resort with him (when quite young) to a private room and pray God's blessings and guiding hand to rest upon their son and to make him an efficient Minister of the Gospel. So at the age of 19 years he entered the Ministry.

      Charles Nicholas was schooled at Upper Peck's Run, Buckhannon, French Creek Academy, all in Upshur County, and in Glenville State Normal in Gilmer County; three years in Otterbein College, Westerville, Ohio; finished a three year Sunday School Normal (Correspondence) Chautauqua Course in 1882; graduated in 1895 at Lane University, Lecompton, Kansas with Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts, 1898; Honorary D.D. was conferred by Philomath, Oregon, 1913.

      Minister: Received First Orders July 1880 in United Brethren Church, Buckhannon; took First U.B. Church, Canton, Ohio in 1882; was ordained at Massilon, Ohio 1886; entered Congressional Fellowship at Fedonia, Kansas 1889; chosen President of the Kansas State S. S. Association 1893; elected president of the State C. E. Union of Oklahoma 1896; took professorship of theology and chosen Dean of the Atlanta Theological Seminary 1918-20.

      Author of "WHY ARE SO FEW MEN IN THE CHURCHES" (1893) and "THRESHOLD OF THE KINGDOM" (1907); signed articles in over sixty newspapers and magazines; in MSS unpublished poems "AFTER SEVENTY", and interpretation of the Appalachian folk south of the Mason-Dixon Line entitled "FRIENDLY HILLS" and numerous short stories.
