By another very old map of this survey in my possession this road is shown as being now Buena, and crossing that road about a mile south of Buena. Apparently it was the old road from Egg Harbor to Cohansey and to the Burlington Road. I can find no trace of it 1n this county. One can only conjecture that this ancient highway somewhere met the Old Cape Road and followed that to the Burlington Road, probably by way of Hance’s Bridge or possibly by Souder’s Mill, or it may have crossed the Maurice River at Maull’s Bridge and reached the Burlington Road by the old road that ran from that bridge towards the southeast through the present Rosenhayn neighborhood.
