Grin like a wampus cat

'To grin like a wampus cat'
since the 1800's in the Ohio valley my family has preserved this phase, I believe it is synonymous with Cheshire Cat and once saw a citation in print that it was and came from West England but south of Cheshire. Has anyone any information?
Also I believe that the Wampus Cat references you may find on the web are American inventions much like brain eating zombies which are American perversions of Voodoo.
