About Nathan Lake

The Revolutionary War brought dissention and divided loyalties among the Lake families. Because most of the Lake families had received their land holdings from the British through land grants, there were strong feelings that they should be loyal to the crown. Most of the male member of these "loyalists" took up arms against the colonists and some gave up their lives. Other Lakes sided with the colonist cause, bore arms some lost their lives, too. At the end of the war, those who had united with the British forces found themselves dispossessed and landless. To start over again, some made their way to Canada during and after the war.
