QRYTEXT: Well friends, the Russell County VA courthouse burned, so there are no vitals prior to 1830. The 1900 Meeker Co. MN Census has Wm Fuller b. 1827 [probably Russell Co.] VA--my gggrandfather,m. Mary 'Polly" Sword in Pike County KY and lived on Island Creek many years--and this census indicates his father was born in NC. The existing theory is that his parents were John Compton and Rebecca Wallis (she born in VA.) There are Johns I have located in NC, but none that I have been able to develop so far. Can you folks researching the NC branches give me some proof as to Wm. Fuller Comptons parents? Orange County in 1810/1820 appears to be a hotbed of Comptons, although there are those in other counties
