Set in an incongruous location in the middle of a post-World War II suburban neighborhood lies William Matlack, his family and his servants and slaves. William Matlack (1648-1720), the first of his family to come to America arrived in 1677 and made his home on a tract between the two branches of Pennsauken Creek. His wife, Mary Hancock, was born inn 1666, emigrated in 1681 and died in January 1728/1729.

The burial ground, enclosed with a wrought iron fence includes a single upright monument.
