Title History of Funk's Lake
Description not all crowd to one side of the boat as the wind was causing a rough lake. After they were out for some time, the winds increased causing large waves. The young people got excited and scared, crowded to one side causing the boat to tip over. Eight of thein drowned. Only one could swim. He was John Hardin Whitlock from Ephraim. My grandfather Funk made large wire hooks to snag their bodies. All eight were recovered. This lake has been known as Funk's Lake for years. Recently it has been made a State Park, now known as Palisade State Boating Park. - 25 -
