Noah Compson

Today I heard from Jennifer Compson Yoneji yoneji@bresnan.net about her COMPSON relatives.

Jennifer asked if Compson is a corrupted form of Cumpston.  Her father’s name is John Edward Compson. His father was George Compson; his father was Noah Compson.

Compson is indeed a variant of CUMPSTON Have a look at all the variants at http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/cumpston-variants-1a/4533301999

and  http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/cumpston-variants-1b/4533310617

 If you have a look at my website at http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/usa-civil-war/4535509587   in the first column is a mention of Noah as a veteran of the Civil War and I wonder if he is her ancestor? I am looking forward to hearing more about Noah and his family!

Thanks for making contact Jennifer.
