Capt. John Jeffries Burial Marker is an historic burial monument in the cemetery at Scullville Bible Church in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, along County Route 559 near Somers Point. It was built in 1887 and added to both the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
Capt. Jeffries (1829-1887) is known for his association with the ship ''Twenty One Friends'', which, following an incident at sea, floated without crew across the Atlantic Ocean for two years before being claimed and returned to service.
The Capt. John Jeffries burial marker is approximately tall and the largest marker in the Scullville Bible Church cemetery. The church was built in 1866 and, at the time of his death, was named ''Palestine Bible Protestant Church''. The monument is made of marble and stands on a square brick base approximately on each side. It is located in the Jeffries family plot behind the church, surrounded by other local-area family plots, many of which also date back to the 19th century. The square center section features an inscription, and above that a bas-relief engraving of the ship associated with Jeffries—and the source of his historical fame—the ''Twenty One Friends''. Another smaller section above bears the initials “J.J.” and a draped urn is carved at the top of the monument. The center inscription reads:
''Capt. John Jeffries. Born Nov. 15, 1829. Died March 17th 1887. A member of the K. of P.''
