The last chief to rule the Green
Lake area was Chief Highknocker. His Indian name
was Hanageh, but the white settlers referred to him as "Highknocker"
because of the stovepipe hat he always wore. His
death certificate lists his name as Dick Highknocker and
records the cause of death as accidental drowning.
There is no evidence alcohol was involved. His
date of birth was listed as not known on his death
record, yet his gravestone carries it. Originally
he was buried in the Township of Berlin and later moved
to Dartford Cemetery.
Contrary to the myth, there are no
children buried inside the mausoleum. It contains
the remains of a man named Jackson Walker.
