Harveys Lake history:

"This one is sent in by Nanette Armstrong: Consulting the book "Harveys Lake" by F. Charles Petrillo, Harveys Lake was "discovered" by Benjamin Harvey in 1781. Harvey had been held prisoner by the British-Indian war party, and when no longer thought a threat to the British war effort was released. Following Bowman's Creek he then came upon a ridge and saw the lake through the trees. He followed the lake around to find his home which was situated on Harveys Creek at West Nanticoke. "
