I was under the same impression until a family researcher went to Germany to look into the Champion/ Ganoe lines. It seems both families were French, but left France during the mid 1700's because of their religion. They were not Catholic and France at this time was a Catholic country! The French government was hanging protestants. They left France and traveled to a small town called Keltz, Prussia, now Germany.
Hope this helps.
