in Rampart Mts., flows SE to Yukon River, 19 mi. ENE of Tanana, Kokrines-Hodzana High.
Named for Edward and "Eff" Schieffelin (the former discovered gold at Tombstone, Ariz., in 1877) who organized a large party and prospected along the Yukon in this area in 1882 and 1883. The name appears first as "Sheflin" on Edwards Track Chart of the Yukon, dated 1899 (Cantwell, 1902, p. 277). The name "Shevlin Creek," applied in 1898 to a stream on the left bank of the Yukon near here by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), was also intended to commemorate the Schieffelin brothers expedition. The exact identity of this stream is doubtful, but it probably is the same as "Sancho Creek" listed by Cantwell (p. 277), which may be the "Stevens Creek" of today.
