  1. My grandparents homesteaded near the town of Faith which was on or near Pakowki Lake. They settled there in about 1912 but didn’t last long due to drought and less than ideal conditions for growing grain. I would love to know more about the area, the settlers and the towns too if anyone has information. Faith seems to be a ghost town about which there is little information.

  2. HI my family was in the Faith district. There was never a town there but a church, post office and school all in close proximity but not as a town. Email me if I can fill you in Rob.
