~~~~~~
Per research, I believe Fred W. Champion passed away between the 1910 & 1915 census (most likely in Riley County, KS). His middle initial might stand for Winslow, as in his father's middle name. At the age of 60, on the 1910 census, his residence was WILD CAT, RILEY COUNTY, KANSAS; living w/his wife, 6 of their 8 children (1 set of twins), and a hired man. Their last name was transcribed poorly; it should be Champion.

------
The 2 oldest children missing on the 1910 census are a daugher, Eva M. Champion (born abt 1883) and a son, Claude Earl Champion.

Are these possibly infant daughters of Fred and Carrie Champion, buried in the same cemetery - Mabel and Myrtle Champion?
