The following query was taken from the D-OGS September 2010 Newsletter:
Brett Compton submitted a query about his COMPTON ancestory of Orange or Caswell County:
I’m looking for proof that an ancestor of mine lived in either Orange or Caswell Co. His name was Jeremiah Compton. He would have possibly been in Orange County from his birth in around 1780 until 1805 or so. His parents were probably James and Frances Herndon Compton.
I would appreciate it if you could look for any of these people in the early Orange County land records!
If you have any additional information on this family, please feel free to leave a comment below or email this person directly by clicking on their name at the top of this post.
