to have a connection to Chazy Lake and Dannemora area. Many have moved
away, but still try to keep in touch. I will list anyone who wants to be
listed and maybe we could form some online forum someday.

Subject: Haley Family Party
From: Dorie Haley < firstname.lastname@example.org
The Haley families celebrated 50 summers at Chazy Lake
in August 2005.
Russell Haley and Wally Haley bought adjoining land and built camps,
now belong to Tim Haley and Dorie, Syd & Wally Haley respectively.
We had a wonderful day celebrating with around 200 old and new
camp friends. What an awesome place!
Chris and I enjoyed this party very much.
Great to see all our friends from near and far..ROD

I am hoping that you might be able to help me. I have
been searching for place that I believe is
near Chazy Lake. I was told that somewhere near the prison
( I believe adjacent) there was
once a place called "Saddle Lake Camp" It was owned by
the Salvation Army back in the 70s
early 80s. Afterwards, it was sold and I'm trying to
find its location. I used to attend this camp
as a child and I have been searching for it ever since.
If you happen to have any information or a site on the internet
where I might be able to get some
history would be appreciated. I spent 3 days on your
website and links hoping to find any
information to no avail.
I thank you for your time.

From: Cheryl King < Redstreamcottage@comcast.net
I found this map online showing the Adirondack region
in 1895. It shows the Chateaugay railroad, and the wagon roads
throughout the mountains. I was especiallyinterested that it shows
Chazy Lake Station! Also there is a place called Coalkin Jct.
which looks like it is near Mud Pond or just at the base of Elbow Hill...
no wayto make a better guess from the scale of this map. I've never
heard of Coalkin Junction. Maybe someone knows.

If anyone has information on email addresses and homepages
for relatives of the Tolosky family of Lyon Mountain/Dannemora, we'd
appreciate hearing from you. My dad, James Tolosky (1917-1995)
was the son of Jacob & Eva (Ryan) Tolosky. Jacob ran the Tolosky
grocery & liquor stores in Dannemora, and was a postmaster there.
I believe there is also a connection to the DuCharmes of Lyon Mountain.

I just found your site today. Through genealogical research
this week, I realized that my earliest beginnings were from Chazy Lake,
it looks like a wonderful place. My great-grandparents were both born
in Dannemora, their names are William and Dela (Jarvis) Cadrette. William
was born in 1885 and Dela in 1886. I believe 7 out of 9 of their children
(one being my grandmother) were born in Chazy Lake area. A couple of
the children were born in Lyon Mtn. Their first names are Willard, Irene,
Euclid, Chester, Ida, Velma, and Blanche. They were born between 1905-1919.
I would like to know where or through whom, that I would be able to purchase
some pictures from this time period. Thank you for this beautiful site,
the connection, and your time.

I enjoyed reading/looking at your
pages on Chazy Lake and Lyon Mountain. I lived in Lyon Mountain
as a small child from 1959-1968. My dad (Joseph Tolosky, Jr. -
Judd) was transferred to Moriah and that is where I grew up and my mom
still lives. My grandparents (Joseph and Margaret Tolosky) owned
Bunchberry Lodge on Chazy Lake and that is where I spent my summers.
Some of your pictures brought back some very bittersweet memories.
Whenever I think of a peaceful place in my life - it is sitting on the dock
and listening to the water at Chazy Lake. Thank you!

me to the connections page. I grew up in Chazy Lake, leaving
"home" in 1964. The best fireworks I ever saw were at the little park
near the dam one Fourth of July! They weren't the biggest ever,
but they were spectacular reflected in the surface of the lake. Thanks
for a great page.
The picture below is copied from your site.
A number of things intrigue me about the picture.
The first is the hat on the man in the boat. While this type of
hat was quite common at the lake, it was Grandpa's winter trademark when
I was growing up. The second is the boat. Grandpa had a boat like
this when I was very little. It was an inboard with a mahogany top.
The boat was painted red and white. Third, is the dock and the orientation
to the point. Memory doesn't always serve well, but this dock is
in what was King/Breyette territory back
then. Fourth. The ice is only recently off the lake (must
have been the first week of August ... just kidding!). You can
see it piled up on the north side of
the point in the back of the picture. Grandpa always had to
be among the very first on the lake with all his boats. So I'm
thinking that this is a picture of Howard King, Sr. in his inboard boat.
Out for some early trout fishing.
Do you know anymore about it. It appears to be
a postcard, which would not surprise me if it were indeed Grandpa.

I'm writing in case you'd like to add my name to the list of people on
your site or add this message to the bulletin board. My great
grandaunt, Gertrude Troxel (later Patterson) came to Chazy in the early
1900's, to work for William Miner, at Heart's Delight Farm. It's
not clear whether she was a secretary there or a teacher, but I've got
lots of old pictures of the Farm, the surrounding area, the Adrondiacs,
etc. Also, she collected postcards from the farm and has saved
a big stack of them. We've
got her calendar from the farm, which is in mint condition,
and also several interesting letters. If anyone's interested in
photographs of the farm, or is searching for information about
it, they can e-mail me and I'll do whatever I can to help. Also, if
anyone's got any information on Gertrude, or anything about the farm,
I'd love to hear from them. Thanks! Take Care, Sally Morris, White

What a great idea to build a Chazy Lake web site! We
look forward to seeing you on the lake someday.
We've been at Chazy Lake since 1991, having purchased Harold
Wrisley's camp. We love the lake for its clean water and surrounding
wilderness. We have climbed to the top of Lyon Mountain every fall since
arriving, and really appreciate the arial shot of the lake on your web
site. Our camp is one of the last before the dead end, in a small sandy
bay. We keep hearing about how the lake used to be much shallower, and
how there was a very big sandy beach all along our side. We experienced
this back in '93 or '94, when they opened the dam. Do you by any chance
have pictures of the lake when it was that low? We regret not having taken
any ourselves. Good luck with your new house, it looks great.

My family (Robinsons) have been going to Chazy Lake for over

the lake - We are located next door to where the Dames used to have
their camp. Can't think of our number right now. We have spent many
happy summer days there and still get down there for a week or two each
summer. It is like heaven on earth. It makes it a lot closer

I agree with my cousin Joe Yanulavich (your page two entry)...
my mother was his father's sister so we have a lot of the same family
memories.. the picture is older than 1967, because, in the 50's the
houses were well along in years, so your picture was probably taken
in the late 30's or early 40's....AND the ore sand pile is "WAY" smaller
than I remember it!
Good to see someone is working on keeping the history alive!

ROD I lived in Chazy during my early
childhood. my father was a guard at Dannemora. my grandparents and
my baby sister are buried at Chazy cemetery. I have only been back to
Chazy twice in the past 15 years / last time being 9 years ago. It felt
really great to see these pictures that you had of Chazy. Thanks
Gary from Syracuse. I now have something to show my kids.

Dear Mr. Bigelow,
Found your history page through a patron
and am very interested in your Chazy Lake information. I am the librarian
at Dannemora Free Library and we will be establishing a web page soon
here. I am trying to find links to information such as yours. If you
connect to any other links or have any further historical or geneological
information, please let me know.
Thanks, Judith Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I'm a "born and bred" Chazy laker ...... great grand daughter
of Wilfred King. My childhood was spent at the pump house beach.
After exploring your web pages, I felt i had to write and tell you just
how much i enjoyed them. The pictures are incredible. My family still
owns and enjoys a camp on the opposite side of the lake.

This is Susan Jordan Heller. I walked by your house
on my way to school everyday. I must say I don't miss that cold
and snow. I live in Arizona now and have for the past 25 years.
I was surprised to find anything when I searched for Dannemora and
there was all this information. I have several old pictures of
my great grandfather, Jerry Haley in front of the wardens house in
1902. Thanks for the information. If you have time write a note
and tell me how you and Chris are doing.

Hi; I'm a new user from Sunset Rd., Lyon
Mountain. My good friend Barb Martin gave me the address for Chazy Lake
and your address. After 4 weeks searching for it I found it this
PM. Maybe you know my husband the Ford dealer? Would appreciate
a reply. Presently I am involved with the project for the Chateaugay
Lakes Arts Asso. planning a day on July
17,1999 in Lyon Mountain depicting the history of this town.
Can you help?
Make sure to give instructions for dummies!
Subject: Old snapshots from Lyon Mt
Date: Mon, 26 Oct 1998 16:20:55 EST
What a bit of nostalgia for my Mom and her family. Do you happen
to have any kind of dates for these? My Mom was born in 1922
and she is one of nine children of John and Dorothy Smithrovitch.
John was a miner and work in and around Lyon Mountain and was involved
in a fatal mining accident. Peter, Anthony, Joseph and Charles
all worked in and around Lyon Mountain and were employed at one
time or another at the local furnace in Lyon Mountain. If you can
furnish any information about the family it woul.d be interesting
to know and greatly appreciated by all. Best regards, yours sincerely,
