I am also researching Henry B. Lecompte who ran a Tavern in East New Market, MD. As well as other Lecomptes who owned property there.

Steven Lecompte...
3 March 1835 / 9 March 1835 - Stephen LeCompte Will
To Tryphena LeCompte, wife, (1) my middle farm where William Hibb now lives, for her natural life and then to Leven LeCompte, son of my brother, Charles LeCompte. (2) my lower farm adjoining the lands which formerly belonged to Levin Lake, deceased, during her natural life and then to Mary Jane Fleharty, my niece. (3) my houses and lots in the town of East New Market during her life and then to Mary Jane Fleharty, my niece. (4) residue and remainder of estate.
To Smart LeCompte, son of my brother Charles LeCompte, my farm adjoining lands of John H LeCompte.
To negro slave, Harriott, be free at my death.

Charles Lecompte owned a lot of property in East New Market. He died between 1809 and 1811. His property ended up with his heirs. Joseph K. Traverse (who married Mary Ann Morgan), Mary Ann Traverse (who married James H. Bradshaw), and Frances E. Traverse (who married James A. Byus). Does anyone know his exact relationship to these heirs?

Louisa Lecompte, widow of James Lecompte, bought land in East New Market in 1853. She passed away in 1863.

Does anyone have more information on these Lecomptes?
