Welcome to G2G forum James,

Based on the information you're providing, perhaps this is the cemetery you're looking for:

https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/73497/compton-cemetery

There are 5 Memorials listed, 3 of them are Comptons.

If there's additional information you coud provide (Time frame, fam. tree, etc.), it would help to have a better aproach.

In the various Weddington surnames, I remembered there are two Compton women who married into Weddington, and both born in Kentucky:

If you look at Kate's ancestors, you can trace up to her paternal great-grandfather Thomas Compton (1788-1855) who was born in South Carolina and died in Pike County, Kentucky. 

Perhaps your family is related to this Compton lineage?
