On this page you will find photos, descriptions and a link to purchase one of the remaining 11″ tall 250th anniversary Samson Occom ball jointed dolls. In addition to the doll dressed in period-style ministers clothing, info sheet, and Certificate of Authenticity (COA), these dolls arrive in an old-world map trunk with several accessories.
To learn the back story of this doll, please see the Samson Occom doll homepage.
One accessory is a wampum belt which was hand-beaded by Brothertown descendant Tasha Thompson Martinez. It reads, “Eeyawquittoowauconnuck” which, as Occom noted in his 1785 journal, is “Indian” for Brotherton.

Inside is a real miniaturized letter Occom wrote from England to his wife Mary, a quill, bottle of ink, faux wax candle, hand-made wax seal bearing Occom’s initials & written in his own hand, a Bible (with readable pages), and a cross.
Attached to the trunk is a tag bearing a portrait of Samson Occom while the reverse bears a copy of Occom’s signature:
