Susan - In your post # 2776 to the Compton Forum you wrote, "Some information indicated he moved to Kentucky but I couldn't confirm this".
Would you share with me what that information was?As you now know, I can place William in Kentucky for sure, and I strongly believe it was in Madison County, +/- 1807.
Amy Compton, born 10 December, 1755 in New Jersey, is reportedly a sister of this William Compton.She married Gerard Brickey, January 20, 1781 in Botetourt Co. VA per Brickey researchers.
Gerard and Amy and various other Brickey families went to Missouri Territory, arriving in Washington County, MO, at or near Potosi, in 1812. . .some said 1817.
I am wondering if perhaps they all traveled together, picking up other wagons along the way, and specifically our Wm. Robinson and Elizabeth, the Shannons and the Borans who are tied to the William Compton family in the 1815 lawsuit in Lawrence County, Arkansas.
I have a Jonathan and Samuel Brickey in Lawrence County, Missouri Territory in 1816 records.
