Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton Cemetery
Sure there are all sorts of celebrities buried in Princeton Cemetery. The biggest is President Grover Cleveland.
More important to candy-eaters is the fact that Grover's daughter, Ruth, was laid to rest by her father. That's right -- as in Baby Ruth. (You'll have to look carefully.) The confection was named after her, and not after baseball star Babe Ruth.
Aaron Burr isn't far from the Clevelands, and neither is the George Gallup and his family. You might remember Gallup as a pollster.
