In Response To: Re: Documenting Joshua Compton ()
Re searching more, thank you, Ron, I will do as you suggest. There is no mention of criminal court .. just metions that the big landowners and their slaves voted in large number for Josh and his years of elected service was said to be on record in court minutes in Davidson Co,TN ... that was written by a causian man living at the time, who was astonished that Josh was an elected official! Since the big landowners wanted him elected, he was the overseer for his father's land, he was well respected by all men .. just would like to have proof forhis family history in writing ... perhaps in time I'll find it!
