Shortly after the Gerster family's first arrival at Raquette Lake in 1884, Mike took Mrs. Gerster rowing. When he told her she might see a deer in the lake, Mrs. Gerster asked how she could be sure to recognize it. "If ye see something swimming that looks like a mule with a rocking chair on its head, that'll be a deer," explained Mike."

From History of Hamilton County (Pg. 81) "The family of Isaac Monk, with father and two sons in service, living near Oxbow Lake in the town of Lake Pleasant, were threatened with freezing to death when caught in a merciless blizzard during the extremely cold winter. For two and a half days, they were isolated by wind-whipped snow, piled in such towering drifts that the young girls could not reach the woodpile nor tend to stock in the barn. Lucinda, age 11, became gravely ill from the bitter cold. At last, when hopes for survival had faded, old Asa Church and his son, Charles, were seen breaking their way on handmade snowshoes through the huge snow banks to offer badly needed help. Soon the weather warmed and the snow began to melt. But the young Lucinda failed to recover; her small fair-haired form was buried beside the small mountain home."
