Biography

Daughter of Samuel B. and Elizabeth (Wheeler) Blakeman

  • Husband #1: Joseph Watkins (1663-1711) m. 4 Dec 1688, 9 children
  • Husband #2: Jessie Lambert (1663- abt 1720)
  • Husband #3: Samuel Camp of Newark, NJ

She had returned to Stratford after the death of her second husband. She made her will 10 Feb. 1723/4, proved and recorded 2 Dec. 1729 at the Fairfield Probate Court. However, the three witnesses, named below, appeared before Samuel Alling, Justice of the Peace for Essex Co., N. J., 22 Nov. 1729, to acknowledge their signatures, so that her death probably occurred that month. The will of "Joanna Camp wife of Samuel Camp of Newark in the County of Essex being attended with illness and weakness of body" reads: "I give and bequeath unto my children all and singular the land and meadow which I have in the bounds of Stratford in New England." Later on it says the land is given to her eight children, unnamed , to be divided equally. This is with the consent of her husband, and the will was signed by Samuel and Joanna Camp. Witnesses "Joseph tomson, Hugh robarts and John bowers." No executor was named but on 2 Dec 1729 Joseph Watkins of Piscataway in East Jersey executed a bond as Administrator cum testament annexo.
