      received let Sept. 1747S/Hildreich (?) (secretary?)

      He was a young adult when he left his homeland he sailed with : . his wife and children and settled most likely in Maryland It is not known how many children he and his wife had. But it is certain that two were sons - Jacob and Christian. Jacob was born before the family left Henssweillen .

      The first Maryland reference the name is found in four Frederick County land transfers date 1784, showing Christian clamper obtaining the property from Mr & Mrs. Absalom Barham Peter Brunner, John Young, and Joseph Dodson Actually some earlier reference has been found, but for some unexplained reason the name was recorded not as Champer but as Jumper. The reference is Christian Champer's marriage Oct. 10, 1783, to Elizabeth Orem, and it is not the only time (two or three other documents list it as Jumper) that the recorder seems to have confused the name
      Members of the family were engaged in some form of business while they were in Frederick County, and Jacob-II's home there was located between Libertarian and New Market on the waters of the Monocacy .

      Genealogical research of the Christian Champer branch apparently was undertaken several years ago by one of Christians great-great grandson, a Man named Louis Robert Hamill who was born 12/26/1879, in Newton, Kansas and died 8/29/1943. No doubt his Papers would be of tremendous value to this history. but attempts to locate his children he had seven) leave thus far been unsuccessful.

      Mr. Hamill was married to Enriqueta Elvira Bofill y Decide, who was born June 23,1880 & Mantanzas 'Cuba. On 2/28/1921, Mr. Hamill retired as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army, leaving served in Co, A. 10th Inf., Hasp. Corps, 162nd Co.," CAC. 80th Co CAC Sanitary Corps, Base Hosp., 136. From 1922 to 1928 he was superintendent of an Antilles Molasses Company terminal, and after 1928 for the Texas Company (WI.) Ltd. also, he was a member of the . Pennsylvania Society, Sons of the American Revolution, having filed his application through one of his Hamill ancestors, was a resident of Mantanzas and Key West, Florida.

      A list of Mr.Hamill ancestors, including the Christian Champer line, can be found in the 'The Compendium of American Genealogy, First Families of America, Vol. VI 1937
      The Institute of American Genealogy, PP 268-269 Because it deals with direct lineage alone it mentions only the daughter (Rebecca) of Christian and Elizabeth Orem Champer from whom Mr. Hamill was descended Other references have shown that-there also were two sons, John & Basil Champer land at least one other daughter, Mary Champer.

      Christian Champer's family moved Frederick County in the early, 1800's and settled in Owen County in Southwestern Indiana. There is no evidence to show whether he died before this time or not until after the family relocated; however, it is known that he died prior to 1830 because the Owen County census of that year lists Elizabeth as head of the family

      of their children, Mary was married 10/10/1806, in Frederick County to Abraham Furry. Rebecca was married 4/26/1810 in Frederick County to John Henry Barickman who was born 9/22/1786, the eldest of the nine children of Christopher and Anna Maria Bantz Barickman Also, records for Owen County show that Calendar Champer was married 3/25/1827, to John Hollenbeck, and that Catharine Champer was married 10/21/1830 to Thomas R.P. Howe; however, both of them probably were Christian Champer's granddaughters

      The Name Basil Champer appears a number of times in Indiana records in away that would indicate that it belonged to at least two possibly-three , members of Christians branch. One of them was an attorney about whom the following reference was found. [2]
