I live in NJ and at the library today I found the following paragraph in a book titled "Early Taverns and Stagecoach Days in New Jersey" (I forgot to write down the author's name):
At New Hampton, on the Musconetcong Creek, the Mackey Tavern was kept during the Revolution by Amos Swesey (Swayze), according to his application for a license dated in 1775. Sixty-odd years ago I knew a Justice Swayze from Somerville. He was a descendant, and a member of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Jacob Johnson, Jr., is listed as tavern keeper from 1782 to 1785, and during the early years of the nineteenth century the landlords were members of the John Matlock family.
