It was in the year 1844 that Richard(Richmond) Lake took up his abode inCass County, locating on Section 18, Penn Township.

More About RICHMOND LAKE: Burial: October 1896, Penn Twp., Cass Co., MI The account below is from the book 'History Of The Crandall And Lake.'written by Crayton H. Sigerfoos about 1914. A copy is in the possessionof Donald R. Coy, E-mail: don3127wa@@juno.com Richmond Lake, the eldest child of Joseph and Sallie Lake, married HannahB. Crandall in 1839, and after five years of hard work in Chenango Countyin 1839, New York, got the western fever. His wife's father, Tanner Crandall, tried all his powers of persuasion toget him to give up the idea of leaving his home and people to live in adistant land and among strangers, where he pictured all kinds ofhardships, and talked about how he would, in all likelihood, never seehis Hannah again, for he was much attached to her, and being quite old nodoubt it would be a great sacrifice to him. But Richmond was of a more optimistic turn, and met his father-in-lawwith arguments of a more encouraging spirit, and finally promised the oldgentleman if he would give his consent he would keep him informed oftheir welfare, and also that hr would bring his beloved daughter back tohim in six years, a promise which he faithfully kept. In the year 1844, he, in company with his wife and two sons, William H.H. and James M., aged four and two years, started for the far west, andthat fall they landed at Geneva, on the banks of Diamond Lake, CassCounty, Michigan, and stopped with the family of William Allen and stayedwith them until they could find a place to move into. They finally moved into a log cabin on the Duncan McIntosh farm. At thattime there were the McIntoshs', the Moons, Jone's, and Alexandersscattered over Young's Prairie. Mr. Lake, being of a very industriousnature and always lively and full of pleasantry, soon worked himself intothe good graces of these first settlers of the land. Always not onlyready and willing but anxious to work at any thing to make an honestliving and always to do an honest day;s work, he soon established anenviable reputation for honesty and integrity and he was, therefore,always in demand for all kinds of work. At one time, when helping harvest wheat for a Mr. Alexander, it was hiswork to rake and bind after a cradle, as was the custom in those days,and he was working along trying to get every straw in his own swath andalways on the lookout for here and there a few straws that the otherworkers would leave. Finally his employer saw what he was doing and gently admonished him notto be so particular with his work and instead he should leave anoccasional handful and when the harvest was over he should rake a fieldand have all he got from raking, and he declared he had more wheat thatfall, just from the rakings, than he ever knew any of his people to haveat any one harvest in the east. At first, when he began sending letters back home, instead of writinghimself, having never had but three weeks in a school room, he employedAsa Kingsbury to write for him. Of course, he sent back very glowingaccounts of the new country to his folks in the east, but there beingsuch a difference in the two localities, Mr. Crandall was very skeptical. Knowing Richmond as he did, or thought he did, he did not know how totake to the stories sent to him. Finally, he wrote him to write his ownletters and he would believe what seemed to them almost incrediblestories. At the expiration of the sixth year, he loaded his family, which now wasmade up of the wife and five children, and started back to thefatherland. At the end of the journey, when they halted in front of theCrandall home, the father, who was reading in his Bible, that being adaily custom of his, came rushing out with his Bible under his arm andhis glasses astride his nose, overjoyed at the unexpected arrival, andexclaimed, 'What shall we Do! What shall we Do!' They made the trip with horses and wagon, stayed a year and came back toCass County the same way. Soon after coming back, he bought eighty acresin LaGrange, Cass County, where he lived until he bought ninety-eightacres in Penn township, Cass County and moved onto that, later buying anadjoining forty acres. It was while living on the LaGrange townshipeighty that his wife's father came to Cass County to live. Richmond had been writing about the wonderful crops raised by himself andneighbors until, finally, the old gentleman decided to make this hisfuture home. When Mr. Lake Learned to a certainty that he was coming, hewrote him that he had corn growing that had two ears to the stalk and hecould hang his hat on the lowest ear. Well, he came, and after dinner the old gentleman slipped out of thehouse unobserved, as he supposed, and went direct to the cornfield. Thecorn was in the shock, but they had left, here and there, an unusuallytall stalk. Walking up to the first stalk, he squared himself right upto it, and looking up at the ears, he began to shake his head. He was avery tall man, but the corn was eighteen feet tall and the first ear wasten feet from the ground and the top one, eleven feet. All this time hewas being watched by the family. The old gentleman owned that he wasbeat. He said that it was hard to believe much that they had told him,but when they told about the big corn, that capped the climax. We think it would be proper, before going farther, to describe theaverage house of that time. Usually, it was built of logs, one above theother, and the cracks fitted with strips, called chinking; these, inturn, being plastered up with a kind of mortar made of clay and water.The chimney was built at one end, from the ground up, with an opening onthe inside forming a fireplace, and was nearly always built of sticks andclay. On the inside of the fireplace was fastened a wooden or sometimes ironbar, horizontally, , called a crane. On this crane were iron hooks onwhich to hang kettles for cooking. The window was a square hole cut inone end, through the logs, and a sheet of greased paper to to let in thelight. The door was made of hewn boards and hung on wooden hinges with a woodenlatch and a wooden catch on the inside. The door knob consisted of aleather string fastened to the latch, and stuck through a hole a fewinches above the latch, so when anyone on the outside wanted in, theywould pull the string and the latch would be lifted out of the catch,opening the door. Here is where the saying 'Our latch string is alwaysout' originated. The floor was hewed boards, called puncheon, and the roof consisted ofshakes or shingles split out of short logs. The Furniture was usuallyabout as follows: Three beds across on end of the room, which were madeby nailing a strip, the width of the bed, from each corner out into theroom, then setting two posts, dividing the space into three equal parts,and nailing strips or poles from side walls to post and between posts,making three bedsteads across the room. The rest of the furniture wouldcompare favorably with this, but would vary according to the needs andingenuity of the family. Such was one of the first houses occupied by Richmond Lake, as describedby Mrs. Isabell Osborn, wife of the late Jordon P. Osborn, and daughterof Eber Root, as she found it while teaching the Geneva school, and shemade the statement that she never slept more comfortably than she did onone of Mrs. Lake's feather beds and on the pole bedstead,. And Mr. Lakeoften remarked that the happiest days of his life were spent right there. At one time, when he was clearing some land, he made a wager with SilasYoung, who was working with him, that he could chop a cord of stove woodan hour for six consecutive hours. He chose a large maple tree, cut itdown and squared the but of it the day before, and had everything inreadiness. He made arrangements with his good wife for her to hang acloth on the line at the end of each hour, so he could tell just how hardto work, as the boys would keep it corded up as cut. At the end of thesix hours he had chopped just seven cords of wood.
