Re: find history JOSHUA COMPTON, Davidson Co, TN


I researched a family of Comptons in Louisiana that had some similarites to this one but much of their history occurred before the end of the civil war. I think that family of Comptons had come to Louisiana from either Maryland and/or Virginia. Like Tony indicates more work required to better understand who's who here. Here are some census lookups :
