Game from the woods supplied them with food until crops were grown, and often the Indian, between whom the Champmans there waqs the most cordial friendship, were the only reliance. It is related in teh family records, that on one occasion, while riding through the woods, his daughter Mara overtook a frightened buck, chased by a wolf, which held quiet until she secured it with the halter from her horse. The first house erected by him stood on the righthand side of the road leading from Wrightstown meeting-house to Pennsville, in a field formerly belonging to Charled Thompson, and near a walnut tree by the eisde of a run.
