Mystery House Identified

I'm happy to say that Jerseyman has identified the mystery house and now I will post a new one.  Here is his comment:

This is a wonderful view of the Griffith Morgan House, which also shows a portion of the reconstructed section on the west side. This is the original facade for the house, facing the confluence of the Pensauken Creek with the Delaware River. The estate inventory for Griffith Morgan strongly suggests he operated an ordinary here, serving the watermen awaiting a change in tidal flow to travel up the creek or down the river. Despite possessing the trappings of an ordinary, I believe no license has ever been found issued in his name.

Best regards,
Jerseyman
