John T. Champlin, cashier of the Citizens Bank, Eureka Springs, Ark.,
is a native of the county, born on May 8, 1857, and is the second of a
family of four children of Stoddard and Margaret M. (McDonald)
Champlin, natives of Overton County, Tenn. The father was a miller by
trade, but after coming to Arkansas he was engaged in farming for
about thirty-four years. He was killed at his home by "bushwhackers"
in 1862. The mother died in 1886. John T. Champlin was reared on his
parents' farm, and secured his education in his native county. He
remained with his mother until he was twenty-two years of age, when he
began life on his own account as a farmer. After cultivating the soil
for one year, he engaged in the dry goods business, which he has
continued. He is now a member of the firm of W. W. Davis & Co.,
dealers in dry goods and groceries, also of A. N. Matthews & Co.,
hardware merchants, and J. W. Freeman, Gray & Co., commission
merchants. Mr. Champlin still owns a farm of 200 acres, the old
homestead where he was born, and is a director in the bank of which he
is cashier. On February 3, 1881, he was married to Martha A. Davis, a
daughter of W. W. Davis, and to them have been born three children,
namely: Alta, Pearl A. and John T. Champlin, Jr. Mr. Champlin is an
influential citizen of the county, and is a Republican in politics. He
is a Knight Templar and Mason.
