Description From Owner:
  • Cherry Creek - Originally Cherry Bluff Creek, the stream took its name from the chokecherries found in abundance locally. In 1860 two retired HBC men founded the first ranch here.
  • Criss Creek, a corrupted form of Chris Creek, after Christopher Pumpmaker, who ranched here from 1869 until his death in 1876.
  • Deadman River - After Pierre Chivrette, or Charette, killed here in 1817 in a quarrel over the choice of a campsite.
  • Duffy Creek - Patrick Duffy from California, after participating in the Cariboo gold rush and running a bar in Lillooet, settled here in the 1870s.
