John Barry is buried in Old St. Mary's Cemetery behind Independence Hall.
I think Stephen Decatur and his wife are also buried there. She died in Washington, and was buried in a small plot near a university that wanted to expand, so in the early 1980s they dug her up and reburied her at St. Mary's in Philly.
In the movie National Treasure, Nicholas Cage is chased through the cemetery by the Russian mafia, who are trying to get the Declaration of Independence that Cage stole from the National Archives.
