Great Idea!Here's my line, as far back as I have been able to trace it: James D. Compton (me) MO/GA Delbert Earl Compton 1817-MO John Cleveland Compton, 1887-1974, MO John Thomas Compton, 1859-1920, KY/MO James H. Compton, 1824-?, Hopkins Cty, KY Thomas A. Compton, 1794-?, VA/Hopkins Cty, KY Reuben ?. Compton, ?-Aft. 1823, Amelia Cty,VA John?
Reuben fought in the Revolutionary War, possible in War of 1812. Thomas A. married Martha M. Hutchison in Hopkins County, KY 8/1/1818. James H. Married Julia Ann Hobgood 12/30/1845 in Hopkins County, KY. John Thomas married Martha Jane Cook somewhere near College Mound, MO. There's much more, but hope someone will recognize a name any e-mail me for info exchange.
