Re: find history JOSHUA COMPTON, Davidson Co, TN

On the 1870 census, Nashville - the 6 year old mulatto daughter is listed as "Maria L Compton". Her younger sister, age 1 is Mary A.

Title Marriage
Section/pg 218

Bride Compton, Maria L. (African-American)
Groom Noel, Henry F. (African-American)
Date 16 June 1881
Marriagebk 7

This may be the Maria L from 1870.
