Jacob Corson is buried in the Corson Family Burial Ground which is now surrounded by Heritage Links Golf Club near Palermo NJ.
"At the top of the long hill is a large grove of trees that shades the Corson Family Burial Ground. The only legible tombstone is one that was put there recently by the American Legion. It reads: "Jacob Corson, private, Captain Willet Company, Cape May Infantry, seaman, Revolutionary War, 1720-1803. Peter and John Corson were among the first settlers in Cape May County. They were whalers who migrated from Gravesend, Long Island (circa 1695). Their descendants still own the land in Palermo (at 1375 Route 9.)" From the Good Golf Guide, June 28, 2007 by Joe Gorman.

He is the Revolutionary War patriot for over 20 members of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
