There is a quaint story told in the Waikato Times 23 March 1886 about Mr Cumpstone making a valuable find of a seam of gravel.
Can anyone identify him from these few facts? Could he be George – see my website at http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/george-compston-waihi/4538630658
Or could he be from this family?
