BOLTON, N.Y. (AP) — Jim Flynn has his wedding ring back, nearly 40 years after losing it in an Adirondack lake.
The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that Jane and Jim Flynn honeymooned on Lake George after getting married in 1960. They returned to the upstate lake for summer vacations every year until they bought property in the town of Bolton, on the lake’s western shore in 1976.
Soon afterward, Jim Flynn lost his wedding ring in the lake.
A woman from Seattle who vacations every August on property next door to the Flynns’ spotted the gold ring underwater along the shore. It had the date “2-6-60” engraved inside.
She gave it to a year-round resident who eventually learned it belonged to Jim Flynn, who now lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his wife.
