After the WAR, Dr. James McCain Compton, graduated from the University of Louisiana, New Orleans, in 1872, with a Doctor of Medicine degree. He survived many battles, twenty months in Rock Island Prison Barracks, married in 1865, and completed medical school in 1872, to pass away at the early age of thiry-six. He kept jounals all thought the War Between the States and afterward, but they were ruined in storage. Dr. Compton was an avid record keeper, and sadly his patients medical records were lost also. He was the father of two sons and two daughters. My grandmother, Alice Browne Compton Smith, was his youngest child. (Added by Alice Compton Steiner Felgner)
