Dear Susan, Please forgive me for not answering you sooner. Your assumption about Jackson Compton may well be right. The only information I have regarding John Compton being killed during the War 0f 1812 is what has been passed along in the family.I have not been able to verify it.I have found records of a John Compton from Ohio (probably Ross Co.) serving in that war.I have found some information in LDS records regarding Catherine Davis, wife of John Compton and seveal generations back on her lines but with no sources given. Our line is through Nelson Compton and will be happy to share what I have on that line if you are interested.I haven't been working on the Compton line actively in recent months so I'm afraid I can't offer much help to you. Good luck,Sincerely,Marie.
