C. F. Le COMPTE, editor, manager and part time proprietor of the Corydon Times-Republican, is a son of W. W. and S. A. Le Compte, who were natives of Maryland, of French descent. They were married in that State, where the father died in 1860, and the mother in 1885. The subject of this biographical paragraph was born September 24, 1846, at Cambridge, Dorchester County, Maryland, and lived in that place with his parents until May, 1865. He then came to Corydon, where he was first employed in tailoring, and then by his half-brother, I. H. Meekings, in his dry-goods store. Later, he purchased an interest in the business, and was a partner of Mr. Meeking's until they sold out their stock and retired from mercantile life. Mr. Le Compte commenced working "at the case" about 1870, having previously learned the printer's trade in Maryland. Two years later he became associated with Lewis Miles in the publication of the Wayne County Republican, with which he remained until its consolidation with the Corydon Times, in December, 1884. Since that date he has published the Times-Republican. Mr. Le Compte was united in marriage, December 27, 1870, with Miss Hannah, daughter of William Miles, of Corydon. Five children have been born, three now living -- Charles Edward (deceased), William Rollin, Clarence Leroy (deceased), Emily Coy and Nellie. Mr. Le Compte is a Republican, and while editing the Republican, was also, from 1875 to 1885, postmaster of Allerton.
