I have been doing family tree/ancestry research and I've been trying to find information on my Uncle, Donald Sullivan, who I was told drown in Lake Ronkonkoma sometine in the 1950's. I haven't been able to find anything on drownings other than the "Legend" of the Lake.

I thought they were my lover, so I pulled them down. They ended up going through the bottomless bottom all of the way to the sound!

I was 13 at the time and my next door neighbors use to go to the Lake every summer ! There son who I believe was 18 at the time drowned in the lake. I was friends with his brother Kevin. Supposedly he dove off of a rubber type raft and never came up ! They didn't find him for at least 3 days. It was about 44 years ago so I can't remember exactly where his body surfaced but I just remember they said you couldn't tell it was him because he was under water for so long ! He was a good looking blonde kid who was a very outgoing cool guy too ! I rember the family were pretty devastated and never vacationed there again ! 2 years later we moved out to Long Island to Selden which wasn't to far from the Lake. I remember hearing about the curse back then that each year a young man is taken by the Lake.

Looks like the Lake claimed another... They just turned the search into a recovery for a kayaker who they fear drowned today (August 14, 2014)

He surfaced out in the sound, by Setauket. I remember thinking all of the bottomless stories were bogus - until this happened! Be safe out there, folks.

I remember sometime in the late 60s or verily early sevenths a young man died in the lake. He was a army vet of Vietnam who was very badly wounded in his head. He graduated in 1965 from sachem high school. I can't remember his name but I think of him from time to time. I was Aldi in the army and remember he went to naim first I followed a month later . He was only there a month before he got hit. When I came back a year later I ran into him. The poor guy had gotten a bad brain injury ,had huge scars on his head. He had trouble remembering anything . I guess he could not take it anymore and walked into the lake and took his life. Would any one know his name? I hope he is resting in peace now.
