Elizabeth (Caple) Mading died 1834 of milk sickness in Edwards Co., IL.
I am a gggrandson of Champion Mading and Mary Crabtree. Mary Crabtree is the second wife of Champion. Mary birthed 2 sons and then died. Champion married for the 3rd time to Mrs. Elizabeth (Craig) Vinson and there were no more children.
Champion Stewart Mading is buried in Macedonia cemetery, Shelby Precinct, Edwards Co, Illinois. In the summer of 2013, his headstone was replaced by a bronze military plaque noting his service in 1832 of the Black Hawk War. I have not been able to locate any of the graves of Champion's 3 wives.
