I'm posting the townships that appear to be missing from this site, when in reality they're just listed under different names. Subsections of towns are used for census purposes--they're called "unincorporated areas," or "census designated places." This may have been obvious to some of you already, but if I was confused, someone else probably is, too.

The "missing" township is listed with the name(s) of its unincorporated area(s) following:

Burlington County

Evesham: Marlton
Florence: Florence-Roebling
Moorestown: Moorestown-Lenola
Mount Laurel: Ramblewood
New Hanover: Fort Dix (pt.), McGuire AFB (pt.)
North Hanover: McGuire AFB (pt.)
Pemberton: Browns Mills, Country Lake Estates, Fort Dix, Pemberton Heights, Presidential Lakes Estates
Southampton: Leisuretowne
Springfield: Fort Dix (pt.)

Camden County

Cherry Hill: Ashland, Barclay-Kingston, Cherry Hill Mall, Erlton-Ellisburg, Golden
Triangle, Greentree, Springdale
Gloucester: Blackwood, Glendora
Voorhees: Echelon

Gloucester County

Deptford: Oak Valley
Greenwich: Gibbstown
Harrison: Mullica Hill
Logan: Beckett
Monroe: Victory Lakes, Williamstown
Washington: Turnersville

Salem County

Pittsgrove: Olivet

Vincentown is a part of Southampton and the names are used interchangably.

K, I guess a lot of these are obvious, depending on the area where you live. But for some people who are researching places they are unfamiliar with, they might wonder why they are hearing all sorts of things about Jackson Twp. (by me), for example, and can't find it on City-Data. In that case, you'd have to use "Vista Center" to look up stats, even though I have never heard anyone refer to the Twp. as Vista Center. It's the unincorporated area within Jackson used for census purposes. I just posted these charts to help people who can't find Twp. names on here because they don't know the alternate name.

Edit: I just noticed that you're adding something that's not already on the list. I think adding that info is good, so potential buyers can learn more about the area they're researching. However, in terms of looking up Southampton on this website, one would have to use "Leisuretowne" and not it's township name or the interchangable name "Vincentown" that you say residents use. My purpose is to show people that most of the towns that seem to be missing from City Data are in fact listed under a lesser known name.
