One of the many elusive historical subjects along with Camp Olden, is the actual location of the Bordentown Water Works' reserve water supply which was at "Asay Springs." The above is my take on the location, but please understand this is my position at this time, and certainly subject to correction. My research as revealed the the "P. Cubberley" farm shown on the map I have inserted in the graphic above, is in the area of the historic skirmish the Continental soldiers had with the British during the Revolutionary War. At the time, it was a drawbridge. Today is the bridge over the Crosswicks Creek on Route 206. My contention is that Asay Springs is that body of water shown in the map just to the right of the drawbridge as shown on the map.
FROM "LAKESIDE GIRL"Tom - Check the facts about the skirmish over the Crosswicks Creek at a drawbridge - I believe it was over the drawbridge in the village of Crosswicks - the skirmish taking place when a cannonball was lodged in the wall of the Crosswicks Meeting House. Not sure. Lakeside Girl
That was a different skirmish, Lakeside Girl. This one was at the drawbridge that spans the creek on today's Route 206. As I recall, it was only a rifle type skirmish. No artillery.
