Epaphroditus Champion (April 6, 1756 - December 22, 1834) was a U.S. Congressman from Connecticut. He served from 1807 to 1818.
Connecticut Governor Trumbull directed Ct state commissary Colonel Henry Champion to collect cattle and drive them to Valley Forge. Champion and his son Epaphroditus gathered a herd of 300 at Hartford and drove them west to King's Ferry, across the Hudson, New Jersey, across the Delaware to Washington's famished troops west of the Schuykill. They were devoured in 5 days prompting Epaphroditus to remark that they were so thoroughly eaten that "you might have made a knife out of every bone".
