Henry Honaker was cited in the Civil War pension record of Wm F.Compton b. 1827/8 at Russell Co VA, as his brother in law.
William indicated that he was born, and lived in Russell Co VA for 18yrs. And we find Wm, by 1850, living in Pike Co Ky. Also found in Pike Co Ky were: James and Mary/Polly Compton (James b. circa 1791 and Mary/Polly born circa 1794/VA) and Leander Compton b. 1817/VA.
Might you know of any links/connections to the above persons?
My husband descends out of this Wm F. Compton and wife Mary Sword. Any help to connect Wm to parents would be SO helpful, and proof as well :)
Looking forward to hearing from you!
