Franklin Champion. My grandfather, John Franklin Champion, believed that he was the
namesake of his father. The Franklin Champion in the 1870 household is consistent
with that belief. Franklin is not listed in the 1880 Census for Pemiscot County,
Missouri nor on any other location that I can find so it is reasonable to assume that
he had died prior to the 1880 Census. This is consistent with the typhoid fever story
told by John Franklin.

Ann/Delilah Champion. I believe that Ann Champion in the 1870 Census is the same
person as Delilah Champion in the 1880 Census. Ann is listed as age 26 in 1870 and
Delilah is listed as age 36 in 1880 so the age progression is right. The 1880 Census
shows Delilah as a widow. I have speculated that her full name was actually Delilah
Ann Champion and there is some family connection between her and the Joseph Johnson
that appears in the household in the 1870 Census. Iíll explain more about that in
the Joseph Johnson paragraph below.
