Some added data was obtained at the Gloucester County Historical Society Library as follows.

Archibald Campbell, 1753-1852, came from Catawba, settling on the old Cape road, fifteen miles south of Cross Keys, in a great pine forest then standing on the plateau where four streams rise, flowing in different directions: Deep Run, to the Egg Harbor River; Blackwater, Manantico, and Panther branches, to Maurice River. Here Archibald Campbell lived in a log cabin, one of the seven built where he and six others, William Ackley, Jonathan Platz, John Smith Joel Stewart, John Veale and Platz Veale, engaged in making tar from the abundant fat pine knots, hearts, and stumps found in the old pine forest of that region. Note: Trustees of Friendship Methodist Church (1808) included John Smith, Joel Stewart, William Ackley, and John Veal. Archibald Campbell afterward built and occupied "Campbell’s (Buena) Tavern," one of the famous old line of public houses along the 1784 Cape Road. It was located at the crossing of the road from Winslow to Millville, the place later named Buena Vista. '
