Joseph Woolston Brick, (for whom Brick Township, NJ is named) had three daughters: Caroline, Sarah (nicknamed Sally) and Jospehine. Lake Carasaljo is named after his three daughters. Brick named the sister lake, Manetta, to his lwife. Local legend reads that the lake was named after them when all three drowned in it...however history read that the girls were alive when the lake was named. Georgian Court University...once the grounds of the Gould Estate, sits on the north end of the lake.
