They had ten children, and, about 1801, moved to what is now Tompkins Co., NY, but was then Cayuga or Seneca Co. They had ten children: 1) Susannah DeCamp (b. 12/29/1780, NJ; d. 3/26/1862; m. David Ross, 3/2/1799, nine children; possibly remained in NJ?); 2) Gemima (or Jemima) DeCamp (b. 11/16/1784, NJ; m. John Freese, one child); 3) Sally DeCamp (m. Jessie Balknap, five children); 4) Betsy DeCamp (m. Herman Ward); 5) Abraham DeCamp (b. 11/28/1789; d. 8/8/1881, Dexter, Washtenaw Co., MI; m.

Abraham DeCamp and his family apparently moved to Washtenaw Co., Michigan, sometime after 1817, and some of his children settled in nearby Bunker Hill, Ingham Co., MI; Morris and possibly Joseph apparently moved to Chautauqua, Chautauqua Co., NY.
