Finlay River
Finlay River is located in north-central British Columbia, and flows southeast into Peace River. It was known originally as Finlay's Branch, in reference, presumably, to John Finlay of the North West Company, who travelled the river and surrounding area in 1797; the Sekani name for the river is Chu Dadi Ts'elè.1
