the historic county of burlington

i found this pamphlet and actually find it quite interesting. among information gleaned from this mini book i learned that 'cinnaminson' means "sweet water", 'pennsauken' means "crooked river" and 'rancocas' means "many kinsmen". these are all new jersey cities with native american place names!
