    • Daniel Compton is buried in Fort Ancient Hilltop Cemetery. It was began in 1811. It is in Turtlecreek township, Warren Co. Ohio. The cemetery is also know as the Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery as in 1810 a baptist church called Bethel was built there. I believe the area itself is Fort Ancient Hilltop, hence the two names. The cemetery is no longer used. The baptist church there was built in 1857 but has long since been sold and is now an antique shop. -- James Windsor

    • Daniel Compton first moved to Morrow Co. Ohio in 1828, but he did not like the land there and then found a piece of good land with a two story stone house already built on it and a spring or creek nearby and it was very well wooded. This was about 1828 or 29 that he settled in Warren Co. Ohio, near Lebanon a town which was probably at that time little more than four or five buildings. Daniel Compton is found in the 1830 census for Warren Co. Ohio living next door to Jeremiah D. Windsor who had married his daughter Martha Compton who was known as Patsy.

      There is court case in Warren Co. Ohio from 1834 where Daniel Compton and Jeremiah Windsor were sued for cutting down all the trees on a neighbors land without permission. They had to pay $350 to the owner. Of course they had already sold all the trees. They claimed the owner had told them to cut them and keep 4/5 of all they had and to give him to rest. The owner said he never said that and we lost.
