Seking more info on Camptons of Ohio
Briefly,I descend from John Campton and his wife Nancy who married in 1811.My direct line is their daughter Elizabeth who married Nelson J Long in 1839.My great grandmother was their daughter Arminda (Minnie) who married James Thomas Walden in 1880 in Ontario,Canada.
I have spent alot of time on my Walden line and maternal ancestors in Northern Ireland.
Now,I want to connect with the Campton and Long side of my family.I have plenty of binders of material and a couple of books but I'd love to compare data and discuss info with others who share this ancestry with me.
I welcome any info or ideas.Does anyone have info on John's parents names? Was John born in Kentucky? I have info that suggests his brothers William and Robert were born in Pittsburgh,Pa.Is this a possibility?
Does anyone think that Campton/Compton info gets mixed up so a person is unsure if the info relates to us or to Comptons?
