Finally Some Action
While under the control of Indians, something happened at Lake Ronkonkoma that would change the history of the lake forever.
A beautiful Indian girl, Ronkonkoma, fell in love with a settler named Hugh Birdsall. On moonlit nights, Ronkonkoma would steal away into the forest and make her way to Birdsall where she would watch him from the cover of the trees.
One summer night, Ronkonkoma revealed her presence. Birdsall fell in love with Ronkonkoma immediately. Her father, however, forbade the marriage and refused his daughter to see her lover ever again.
Then, however, Ronkonkoma sent a cryptic message to her lover, saying only that she would join him in the morn. As dawn broke, a canoe came rushing toward him . Inside was his princess with a knife piercing her heart. Every year since, she claims a male victim in revenge.
