James is in the back row on the right.


James M. Champ died at his home on Lacamas Prairie, Thursday, March 14, of dropsy. He was born in Martinsburg, Iowa, October 15, 1854, and in 1860 with his parents crossed the plains, arriving in Mason County, Wash., where the city of Shelton now stands.

In 1867 he came to Lewis County near the present site of Winlock, living with his parents until August 27, 1876, when he married to Miss Mary Layton. They moved onto a ranch on Lacamas where they have ever since resided. One son and five daughters were born to them, the son and two daughters being at home and three daughters are married, Mrs. Wm. Snodgrass [Catharine] of Rochester, Mrs. Ralph Lampitt [Viola] of Hoquiam and Mrs. E. Thomas [Melissa] of Winlock. He has four grandchildren. Besides these he leaves an aged father, three brothers and one sister.

It is three months since he was taken seriously sick and the last six weeks he has not been able to lie down at all but sat day and night in an arm chair, suffering patiently and was always cheerful and pleased to see his friends. The remains were interred in the Winlock Cemetery, the Baptist minister of that place conducting the services. The family have the sympathy of their many friends.
