Description From Owner:
  • In 1919 a boxing enthusiast in the Cariboo named this lake after Jack Dempsey, heavyweight champion of the world.
  • Forest Grove - Not after the town in Oregon, but after a grove here. The name was suggested by a sister of E.C. Phillips, the local storekeeper, at a public meeting held to choose a name for the post office.
  • Ruth Lake - Arthur Williamson of North Vancouver named this lake after his daughter Ruth.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
