Jesse Stoddard Champlin had brought his young wife and two small children from Tennessee in 1858 and settled on their homestead. Two more children had been born to their union when the Civil War began and life for the young family turned from happiness to horror. On a winter day in January of 1864, Jesse S. Champlin was killed by bushwhackers in front of his wife and children and in the front yard of a once happy home. His body was taken to the church ground in the dead of night and he was buried by the women in the light of the moon.
