I tried to research this from the possible father's end, but can't find a way to prove the family relations.

I did find some interesting stuff about Champlin Babcock (b. 1757) and added that to his profile:

Most interesting was that he was a Corporal in Rhode Island's Black regiment. All officers were white, so Champlin was white for sure, but he worked with the black privates at least in 1778. 

Also found him in the Tinmouth Vt. Census in 1790. Tinmouth was were a bunch of Rhode Island Seventh Day Baptists relocated around that time. This Champlin Babcock family just left so few records. I put what is thought to be true in the "Research Note" section....just can't prove it. It is thought to be true that this was Champlin Jr.'s father and that the family moved through VT living in Danby and Wallingford as well as Tinmouth. Thought that Champlin Jr. had siblings Samuel and George....and I did find what looks like that same sibling group at Otto NY later on as heads of household.

No proof, but I am getting strong Wallington Vermont vibes off this family group and found something interesting about George Babcock who I think along with Samuel  is Champlin Jr's brother.

See page 313 of This Kirby Genealogy listing Major George Babcock's Parents as Champlin and Eunice Babcock of Wallingford. What kind of Major, I wonder?  

This same George and wife Saphrona ended up  in Wisconsin, via NY, IL, and Minn. according to censuses:  

Someone else was looking for this parental connection long ago. Has possible/partial  death date for Champlin Sr. :

George Babcock and Sophrona Beach's Vermont marriage record  

Champlin Jr's. probable brother Samuel is buried in North Otto Cemetery as is his wife Lydia Hill of Wallingford, Vt: 

Champlin Jr.'s son Darwin married Sarah Hill of Wallingford Vt and both are buried in North Otto Cemetery
