I read a message thinking this is a mispelling of the name LeCompte. It is.
My Families clan comes from South Dakota. My Grandfather had a fight with his father who did spell it LeCompte. My grandfather to get away from his father changed it to LaCompte.
There are alot of LeComptes here in South Dakota but we are of Native american(Lakota,chipewa,and cherokee) blood mixed with Norwegian,german,and french. The LeCompte family from this region is from the Louis LeCompte bunch which came here in the 1800 as a furtraper. How this is conected to you all I dont know. There is an official family tree printed in a South Dakota book that can be read or checked out at the state library but do not remember which issue it was. I did make a copy though.
If you have any questions email me at
