Re: Free online list of Fisk U. students/graduates
I don't have documented history for the dates attending Universities:
I know that Joshua Compton and younger brother Henry (or William) Compton were sent to Fisk by their white father, Henry W. Compton a landowner Davidson, TN. On census, his children were landowners and could read/write .. listed as Farmers, but they owned their farms likely assisted by their father.
-Joshua Compton,birth about 1855,
-Henry (or William) Compton, birth about 1860
Henry T. Noel, birth about 1860 married a sister of Joshua and Henry (or William Compton) -Maria L (Compton) Noel born about 1867 Davidson, TN. A subscriber said Henry T. Noel was a physician, probably graduated HOWARD or FISK.
If they attended college about age 18:
Joshua Compton about 1873
Henry (or William) Compton about 1878
Henry T. Noel about 1878
Maria L. Compton about 1885
One daughter of Henry was sent to New York to music school - Dennie (Compton) Trimble born about 1863 AND/OR Maria L.(Compton) Noel born about 1864 AND/OR Mary Compton born 1870.
