Thats Manumuskin country!The two of us visited the Fairton cemetery again today to take a photo of the gravestone Beck was photographing in the photo in post 252, and to also take a photo at the location on page 190 in the Forgotten Towns Of South Jersey paperback. It was perfectly dry here when we left home, and by the time we got there it was raining pretty hard. I had to leave my book in the car and use my cell phone as a guide. Unfortunately, it was not a good way to go so my photo is a little too close. In any event, this is the best I could do today.

Just a little info on a portion of the map you posted. The property with the "Magenta" colored arrow below was at one time owned by a Joseph Taylor, and also Asa Pitman and his brother-in-law Levi Eckman. I have found 3 of the 4 corner stones for that property.
The bridge shown at the "Red" arrow became useless when the CCC altered the route of the road from Mt. Misery and built the small span that one crosses when driving that road today. The remains of the original bridge are still there shown below. The two roads leading down from the north judging by old aerials was the route Asa Pitman used to get to his other property, formally owned by William B. Wills, just south of there.
This post confused me until I looked at the date. I assume it referring to the cemetery located here.
Below Hampton Gate is a little church in which African Methodists used to worship. It is in fairly good condition, but plainly shows the marks of time. A few grave stones in the rear of the church mark the last resting places of those who were active in the work of the church when it was a power in the community.
