Is it possible that this John Compton is a brother of James Compton, who died in Perth Amboy 11 Sep 1811? James served in the Revolution with a brother, George Compton, and it is this family I am researching. James is either son or grandson of a Wm. Compton who came to Middlesex Co. in 1666 from MA.
