This looks like your ancestor.

1880 Montague TX
Precinct 1

Queen Ann 23 w f TX TN GA (b 1857)
H Oliver 6 w m TX
Viola 2 w f TX
Rosa Sue 10/12 w f TX

The Trail of Tears took place 1838/39, around 20 years before Queen Ann was born. It was the forced removal of over 20,000 Indians from their homelands in the south east to Indian Territory. Very well documented.

A possibility ?

Yes, we are pretty sure that is her but where did the "Queen" come from is that an Indian thing? I'm not sure either if I am finding these people on the role or not. Can You help? Thanks

No, the name Queen is certainly not "an Indian thing".
It is in fact a rather popular name in the 19th century.

And, no, as your folks were Free White Citizens of the United States, you will not find them "on the role", whatever that may mean.
They will be found in Federal Records.

How did you find out that they were free and white. I found them living on the Chickasaw Nation at one point does that not mean anything?

In the late 1800's/early 1900's there were actually more white people in Indian Territory than there were Indians.
When Indians Lands were opened up in the Land Runs, the region was flooded with white settlers.
So, no, the fact that someone was residing in IT does not necessarily mean they were Indian.

I found the family in the US Federal Census.
The 1880 census is free online.
