Hello Carmey,

I hope that you are still checking on this forum for information.

The Comptons were residents in the part of Person County which closely adjoins Caswell and Orange Counties; and possibly lived within the three counties. My GGGG Uncle William "Willis" Wells married Elizabeth Compton Herndon 15 October 1806 in Orange County. As his bride was a daughter of David Herndon and his wife Frances Pearce, it would seem by this that there could have been intermarriage of a Compton with either the Herndon or Pearce family.

Willis and Elizabeth Herndon Wells' son William Wilder Wells married a Rachael Compton 29 November 1839 also in Orange County, NC.

This makes me think that at least one branch of the Compton family lived in Orange County just north of Hillsborough, NC near the Person County border, since my Wells family were of Caswell just adjacent to the Person County line.

I hope this provides some help in your search.

Best regards,

John Fox
Winston-Salem, NC
