So, I have found some more queens, except this time I have not even really a guess as to what they are. She is like 7-9 mm (I'll get measurements later). Found in South Florida at night around 9:00 p.m.

A more accurate measurement is about 7mm.

Also, I found all of them at the same time and there was not really any males around. I only found one on the opposite side of the house. Could this mean they are all unmated? They all also still have their wings and most of them were just sitting on the glass window not really looking for a place to go, so maybe all unmated?

Yes, that seems like a very good ID. I notice that her faster is sort of curved up, like in some of the pictures I see of them. Only thing I don't see is that amazing looking head. I'd be really excited if she is Colobopsis.
