Many people from South Jersey watched the HBO show "Boardwalk Empire," which was set in Atlantic City and followed Enoch Malachi "Nucky" Thompson, which was based on the real-life political figure Enoch Lewis "Nucky" Johnson in the 1920s.

Johnson, who was labeled as an Atlantic City political boss and racketeer, was born in Galloway Township and lived in the area until his death on December 9, 1968, at the Atlantic County Convalescent Home in Northfield.

However, do you know where Johnson is buried?

I had no idea he was buried pretty close to my house and only knew because my girlfriend's son took a picture of his grave's site and sent it to me.

I asked a few friends if they had any idea, but none of them knew that he was buried in the Bargintown section of Egg Harbor Twp. at Zion Cemetery.

I actually drove by the cemetery on Tuesday morning and his gravesite is visible from Zion road.

Is this well-known? Did you know that he was buried in our backyard?
