There is a small family cemetery in the town of Morgan NJ. Was this the property of Daniel Morgan of Revolutionary War Times?

The man who Morgan NJ is named after is supposedly buried in the center of that cemetery. I'm not sure if his name is Daniel.. I've lived my whole life in So. Amboy and was told as a child that supposedly he is Captain Morgan (not to be confused with the pirate on the rum bottle, that's a different Capt. Morgan, also real though) and he buried treasure somewhere in NJ. He was from revolutionary times. However, that's just a story don't know how much is true. There is a book at the South Amboy Library in the reference section about The Olde Spye Inn nearby that burned down and it's revolutionary history. I believe that book should have information about "Captain" or Mr. Morgan in it. You can't take it out of the library since it's reference but you can sit and read it there. It's a big book and I've never managed to read much of it since it can't be checked out. As a kid I was told the cemetery is haunted so I never went near it =) It is locked and gated but I wonder if you can read the name on the tomb stone from outside the gate? (With permission of course since I believe the cemetery may sit on private property) Correction: The Morgan Family Cemetery still remains in the hands of the descendants of the Morgan Family. It is a private cemetery and still in use. The Morgan family once owned a plantation which eventually passed out of the family hands. They were at one time the owners of the Olde Spye Inn but that later passed on to the Applegate Family. The cemetery is the last portion of what was originally the Morgan plantation. Major General James Morgan is the most celebrated of those buried here. James Morgan was son of Charles Morgan and the brother of Nicholas, all of whom fought during the Revolutionary War. Major General James Morgan eventually became a representative to the 3rd continental congress. Daniel Morgan is a member of this family but is not buried in the Morgan Family Cemetery. Family lore has it that there was a fall out between father and son and Daniel branched out on his own. Sarah Morgan (later to marry Squire Boone and have a son named Daniel) was also a member of this branch of the Morgan family.
