Lecompte is a VERY small community in south Rapides Parish. Here are a few tips: depending on how far back you are researching, the Lecompte High School building now houses a museum of sorts. You may find something there. Close to Lecompte is LSU-A. The library there has some historical documents, but not a lot. As you may or may not be aware, the courthouse in Rapides parish was on the "burn list" during the un- Civil War, so a very lot of information was lost at that time. The courthouse is in Alexandria and could be helpful for post Civil War documents. In addition, there is a genealogical library in the old Public library building on Washington Street in Alexandria. You will find volunteers there to help you.

Good luck.
