I would appreciate any help finding proof that FRANKLIN PIERCE COMPTON was born in Linklean 3 Nov. 1817 and who his parents were. He was first found in the 1860 Albion, Dane Co, WI census with Richard R. and Betsey COURTRIGHT Davis but he was listed as born in NY. His death certificate listed Linklean, Chenango Co. NY as his birth place. Frank married Ella BABCOCK and they lived in DeRuyter, Madison Co., NY according to the 1880 census. Future censuses fround the family living in WI.
Frank listed himself in the 1880 census and in all future censuses as Frank or Franklin P. DAVIS. Frank and Ella were my great grandparents and I would like to know which families are my real ancestors.
