History

Name used by local prospectors; reported in 1898 by Lieutenant Castner, USA, (in Glenn and Abercrombie, 1899, map). In 1898 this stream was also named "Schoonoven Creek," presumably for Private George W. Van Schoonhoven, USA, a member of Captain Glenn's expedition (Mendenhall 1900, map 16).
