  • Notes 
    • It is believed that two of the Compton girls, married two James Oliphant.
      Mary Compton married James Oliphant
      Polly Compton married James Glass Oliphant in Sept 1979.
      TWO distinct and DIFFERENT Oliphant family lines, often confused by researchers as one line with overlapping offspring of impossible proportions.
