The reference is probably to Hauto Dam. There is a small village called Hauto on the highway between Lansford and Hometown. There was (I don't know if it still operates) an electrical power plant there as well as a dam. My mother grew up in Hauto and I am familiar with the dam from years ago. Now, I think there may be a resort community there - probably something like Lake Hauto Estates. I don't know for sure as I haven't been there in years. The big church for the Irish was St. Joe's in Summit Hill and the county seat for Carbon County is Jim Thorpe (used to be called Mauch Chunk in those days).
