Were there slave auctions at this Camden, NJ, park?

It is believed that at this park, named after a son of former slaves, there was a slave auction in the 18th century. This information is from an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 10/7/13 at p. B7, concerning a tour tracing the Underground Railroad given by the Camden County Historical Society.
