The Bland Co., VA, Hickman Compton was indeed the son of John Compton, Jr., and was left the original family property.Hickman and Elizabeth Justice had these children:James Madison (1813-1885) md. Lucinda Hicks; Lucinda md. Granduer Neal; Nancy (1816-) md. James W. Shannon; Ellen md. John Steel; William Wilson (1821-1890) md. 1st cousin Nancy Carter Compton (daughter of William B. Compton); Joe; John; Polly md. Ahart Suiter; Rebecca md. Granger Brown; and Hiram C. (1827-) md. Loucinda McGuire.(Census and marriage records).They remained in Bland Co.(previously Tazewell Co.)
The other William W. Compton (with unknown parents) married Sally Compton, daughter of John, Jr., on 2 Dec., 1821 (see "Annals of Tazewell Co.")William W. and Sally's brother Elihu and their families moved to Stokes Mound Twp., Carroll Co., MO around 1832.
What is the source that Hickman I was born about 1740?Also that Hickman I was the father of John, Jr.?Also that Hickman (either)was the father of Thomas Wallace Compton?
I still believe that Polly (Mary) Wall(s) and Rebecca Wallis (Wallace) were two different women because of the reasons I stated, but would be willing to change if evidence proves otherwise.If we could only go back in time and talk to some of these people!Judy
