Thomas J. Compton b. 1855/Pike Co KY and who is the s/o William "Bill" Compton and Mary/Polly Sword. Thomas died July 1921 at Pike Co, Ky. His parents Wm/Mary died in Minnesota.
Thomas J. Compton married Mary Alice McCown in 1875 at Pike Co Ky.
Mary Alice McCown, b. circa 1859/Ky ...but we have no idea who her parents are...might anyone know of her ancestry?
Mary/Polly Sword w/o Willam F. Compton is the d/o John Sword and Rebecca Ratliff. And Mary is the sister to Virginia Sword w/o James Burke, also of Pike Co Ky.
My husband descends through both lines of these Sword women; Mary and Virginia.
We are seeking to understand more about the McCown family from which Mary Alice (McCown) Compton descends...again might anyone have information about her? We think she died btw 1896-1899 at Pike Co Ky. Thomas, her husband was listed as "widowed" in 1900 & after that census was taken he married 2nd to Almira "Myra" Osborne in Dec of 1900 at Pike Co Ky.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone! Thanks in advance!
