John Compton was born in England and immigrated to the US before the Revolutionary war. 
"...John Compton who bought 200 Acres of land on September 13, 1785 from Lewis and Teresia Duvall for five Shillings..."
From a Clan of Compton's:
"Our earliest know Compton ancestor was john Compton who bought 200 acres of land on September 14, 1785 from Lewis and Teresia Duvall for five Shillings. Since the son of this John Compton named his son Lewis Duvall Compton, we wonder if perhaps the wife of john Compton was not a Duvall." What little information that has been peiced together on this Duvall family is that they had one daughter - Elizabeth born in 1769. This family moved to Illinois shortly after the sale of this land. Also this lewis Duvall, b. in 1750 would have been contemporary of John Compton - what if John Compton's sister was Theresa who married Lewis Duvall? Since there is no proof of an Amy, what is the answer? It does seem that there was some sort of connection.
There could have been other children from John, Sr. and Amy Compton:
