VIC CHAMPLIN DEAD.
Passed Away at Soldiers' Home at Age of 80 Years.
Victory Champlin, Civil War veteran, died at the National Soldiers' Home, at Johnson City, Tenn., on Aug. 1 or 2. He was eighty years of age on Nov. 21, 1919. Kidney trouble was the immediate cause of death.
Victory Champlin was born in Liberty on the property still known as the Champlin farm, which his father, "Squire" Champlin owned for many years. When twenty-two years of age he enlisted as a private in the Sullivan County regiment, the 143rd, and fought straight through to the end of the Civil War. Those who fought beside him say that no braver man ever wore Uncle Sam's uniform.
He is survived by two children and one sister. These relatives are widely scattered at this time. His son, Dr. Harry Champlin, lives in Denver. His daughter, Mrs. John P. Kempton, resides in New York City, but is now in Montana, while her husband is on his way to join her there. His sister, Hattie, now Mrs. Kiddo, lives at Bridgeville, Pa.
