Indian Ann
Birth: unknown
Death: 1894

Folk figure. Born Ann Ashatama near Mount Holly, New Jersey, the daughter of Elisha Ashatama. She followed her family's traditional occupation of basket making, and was considered to be extremely talented. From her home in Indian Mills, she regularly walked a circuit between the towns of Vincentown or Medford selling her wares. Some of her basketry survives in area museums and on display at the Shamong Municipal Building. She married twice, her second husband was John Roberts, and her son John, Junior died in service during the Civil War. Ann subsisted on basket making, berry picking, and a small pension. Many years after her death, the Burlington County Historical Society installed a marker indicating that she was considered to have been the last Lenape living in the county. (bio by: Iola)
