  • COMPTON, Thomas >> NC

    Seeking information on the accuracy of a letter I have that was written by a cousin to of my great grandfather, WILSON YOUNG COMPTON. This cousin, THOMAS SMITH COMPTON, states that his grandfather, THOMAS COMPTON, was born 1750-1760 in North Carolina , was a revolutionary soldier under General Green. He married Margaret Greer (Irish). They reared four sons and one daughter: Cyrus Compton (a lawyer) remained in NC. John Lee Compton (a farmer) remained in NC. Samuel Compton (migrated to Georgia) - my gggrandfather - his son, Wilson Y. Compton is my ggrandfather Thomas M. Compton, born in 1816 in North Carolina - (the letter writer's father) Margaret Compton - married Henderson Henslee and moved to SW Missouri. The letter also states there is a family tradition that three Compton brothers of Welsh-English ancestory came to America at an early date. Two of the brothers probably settled in Maryland, and the third brother settled in North Carolina. It is through this third brother that our family is descended. Does anyone have any connection to or knowledge of this Thomas Compton from NC, or to the three Compton brothers??? Any information is greatly appreciated! >>> unsigned
