Seeking information on william and Zachariah Compton who were born about 1790 and moved to Rhea county Tenn about 1815 or so.Reportedly from North Carolina.Aquilla Compton in Creswell and Orange counties may be related as a willliam appears as head of household in both of those counties in 1810 but disappears in 1820.
I would love to know more about this family and roots. Norris, Acquilla, Levy, solomon, Jeremiah?Scotch Irish???where did these names come from?What roots?
I believe that William and Zachariah's father was also William who may have fought in the Revolution.Was he related to Acquilla?
