Do you have any items that you would like to donate that were owned by or made by a Lake family member?   We need items to sell to raise funds for the activities of The Lake Family Historical Association, including the The Lake Family Historical Association Scholarship ProgramThroughout the years, the Association decided to award a scholarship annually to a student graduating Ocean City High School. 

At the 2014 Reunion, it was decided to add Lake Family members to the eligible applicants pool. See the The Lake Family Members Scholarship Program for more details.

Because we are a family, we are interested in YOUR family.  Please send us, or post on the Family Journal page, information about marriages, births and deaths,  so we can make those announcements here on the website and our Facebook page.  We will share “glad tidings” and obituaries immediately and not have to wait until the reunion.

One Reply to “About Us”

  1. I am John Charles Lake, Son of John Tilton Lake, and Jenny Vearling Lake of Pleasantville, N.J. I was born there February 2, 1941 and currently reside in Lakeland, Florida. I am married to Linda Sue Lake, nee Carreker. We have two children, John Charles Lake, Jr, and Dawn Marie Crawford, nee Lake, Each have three children, four boys and two girls.
    I’m looking for another 1915 genealogy. I had two but gave one to Markhanna (Markie) Miller, nee Lake, of Vineland, N.J My father’s sister, and loaned mine to a John Lake in Bakersfield, California which he has not returned.
    Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.
    Regards,
    John C. (Jack) Lake
