I recently was sent records from Botetourt County that indicated several Compton and Tipton marriages.
21 8/10/1785 TIPTON, JOSHUA SHIELDS, JENNAT 25
97 12/20/1843 BARE, ABRAHAM COMPTON, FRANCES 443 35 10/15/1785 HAGDON, STEPHEN COMPTON, LYDIA 26 68 4/26/1780 ASTON, WILLIAM COMPTON, MARGARET 13 3 2/3/1825 HUFFMAN, ISAAC COMPTON, MARY ANN 303
7 1/13/1797 COMPTON, WILLIAM PATE, MARY 90 64 9/8/1801 COMPTON, WILLIAM WRAY, DRUCILLA 122 78 11/21/1811 COMPTON, WILLIAM ALLEN, JANE 201
William's bond 1797 was signed by Matthew Compton which links to the Maryland group.
What is the documentation that links John SR in Botetourt with the NJ line instead of the Maryland line?I am still looking for the parents of William A., Zachariah, and Henderson Compton that all lived in Rhea County Tennessee 1820s-1840s.They all indicated that they were born (about 1788-90) in Tennessee.Rebecca Tipton born about 1760 is living as a widow between Zachariah and William.she may have been Susan/Tipton/Compton's mother/stepmother.
Also do you know where in Botetourt, John and Margaret lived?
