HISTORY: A History of Kentucky Baptists, From 1769 to 1885, by J. H. Spencer, 1886, Reprinted by Church History and Archives, 1976, Lafayette, TN. Little River Association. Livingston County.
Willis CHAMPION was born in Edgecomb County, North Carolina February 1801. He was only four years old when he was brought by his parents to Livingston County, Kentucky where he spent most of his long and useful life. His father went into the constitution of Salem church, in 1805, and he was baptized into the same organization, in October 1819. He was licensed to preach, in June 1833, ordained, by J. W. Mansfield and Abel Teague, in December 1834, and immediately called, unanimously, to the pastoral care of Salem church, of which he still remained a member. To this church he ministered 40 years. In 1804, he gathered Friendship church, between the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. To this church, which, at the time of his death, was the largest in Little River Association, he ministered 20 years. About a year before his death, he moved to Illinois. But he soon returned to his home in Kentucky, and died at the residence of his brother in Livingston County, 9 August 1876. Mr. Champion's gifts were not above mediocrity; but he was a man of undoubted piety, and his zeal was according to knowlege. He was five times elected Moderator of his Association, and was four times chosen to preach the introductory sermon before that body. During his ministry, he baptized 870 persons; and his great popularity was evinced in that he married 440 couples.

NOTES: He was a Baptist Minister and served Old Salem Church from 1837 to 1873.
