Narrative

The most likely first wife for Benjamin was Margaret Evans.

In 1861, they had 3 boys and 3 girls from 5-15, and one girl under 5. This fits fairly well with the PEI Baptismal Index: John, William and Thomas, and Christie and Margaret.

Benjamin was a widower when he married the widow, Mysie McDougall Henry.

We regret to note that Benj. Champion an aged and respected citizen of this place has been suffering from a paralytic stroke since Monday and at present writing was growing worse. Guardian September 1903
