Compere, Lee

Compere, Lee a Baptist minister, was born in England in 1789. Soon after entering the ministry he went as a missionary to Jamaica, but ill health obliged him to return after one year. In 1817 he came to America, and for some time labored in South Carolina, having charge for six years of the mission among the Creek Indians. The transfer of the tribe west of the Mississippi broke up the mission. He followed the tide of emigration, until finally he settled in Yazoo County, Mississippi, where he labored with considerable success for several years. He lived for a time in Arkansas, then removed to Texas, and died there in 1871. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. page 258. (J.C.S.)
