I'm looking for the branch of the Camp family tree that grew in Cumberland, Salem and Cape May Counties, New Jersey bef. 1800.
The family names are;
Camp (Asa Dusky, etc.)
Spence (Isaac),
Vanzant/Vansant (Lydia P. and her family), Hollingshead and Hayes.

I have information/dates on theirs parents, siblings and decendants.

Anyone out there connected?

I, too, descend from your line of Vanzant, Hann, Hollingshead, Spence, Hayes, etc.

Got back to Jacob Hann (Hahn) the immigrant, but can't get back much further than Jacob Vanzant. Do you know who his father was?

Hi, Thank you for your reply, but I can't help much on the Vanzant line. My research right now is focused on the hann side, but I'll try to find out as much info on Jacob Vanzant for you. Thanks again...Georgeanna Hann-Billman

I did my husband's CAMP genealogy--got it back about 8 or 9 generations. The majority of it is Cumberland and some Cape May Counties--Belleplain, Millville, West Creek, Eldora...if any of these names sound familiar, email me and I am more than happy to share what I have!

husband's grandmother--Zilphey (!) CAMP
her parents-John CAMP, Mary Reed(e)
her siblings-Johnathan, William, Pearl, Virginia/Jennie, UKNOWN

Ugh, not enough room to list too much! This family is huge and hasn't left this area in about 150 years...

Look forward to hearing from any CAMP or 'Belleplain' relatives!

I don't know if you can help me or not but thought I would give it a try. My great grandmother was Hannah Camp who married Charles Riley after 1850 as my grandfather was born in 1885.

I have this Camp line back to Lars Camp who had 10 known children: Joseph, John, Paul, Tobias, Lars, Christina, Andreas, Catharina, Brigita, and Daniel.

Joseph Camp m. Eleanor and they had 6 known children: Joseph Jr. (ca 1748 NJ), Ezekiel, William, Jacob, Joel, and John.

Joseph Camp, Jr. m. Mary Hoffman and they had twelve known children: David (ca1774), Eli (ca1776), Rhoda (ca1778), Daniel (ca1779), Thomas (29 Feb 1780), Elijah (17 Dec 1784), James Dusky (ca1785), Phebe (ca1787), Elizabeth (ca1789), Hannah (ca1791), Sarah (ca1793), and Asa Dusky (1802).

James Dusky Camp m. Sarah Hand and had 4 known children: Matthew (ca1819), Rhoda (ca1820), Joseph (1821), and Sarah (1825).

Joseph Camp m. Lydia P VanZant (daughter of Jacob VanZant and Elizabeth Hahn/Hawn) and had 9 known children: Leonard (ca1845), Mary (ca1849), Asa Dusky (20 July 1850), Catherine C (ca1852), Margaret (June 1854), Abraham B (13 Sept 1856), James Dusky Jr. (ca1858), Sarah (ca1862), and Jacob V (9 Oct 1863).

Asa Dusky Camp m. Sarah Spence 'Sallie' Hollingshead. She was the daughter of James and Sarah A Hollingshead and the granddaughter of John Hollingshead and Catherine Errickson. Asa and Sallie had 10 known children.

I don't have a Spence connection, but have always assumed that James Hollingshead's wife, Sarah A, was a Spence given the name they gave their daughter.
