In 1958 a young man named John Jefferson from New York city came here to visit some countryside relatives. He was a very good swimmer and he decided to swim across Lake Mohegan and back to show off his skills.|
He did but when he came back he said that someone had grabbed his foot under the water and tried to pull him under. The locals challenged him to do it again but he didn't want to because he said there was a ghost in the lake trying to kill him.
made fun of him until he jumped in and swam across again. He made it to the other side but on the way back when he was almost ashore he was pulled down
and this time he couldn't stay up, he drowned.|
As far as I know that's the only person the lake ghost managed to kill but there have been many close calls.
