Red-Earth Stream
According to this despatch, at the Red-Earth Fork the Similk-a-meen is left, and the Red-Earth Stream […] crosses the height of land which divides the water-shed of Frazer's River from that of the Columbia.1
It is unclear where exactly the Red-Earth Stream is located, but it has been stated the “Tulameen” means red earth. If the Red-Earth Stream is close or is synonymous with the Red-Earth Fork, Alexander C. Anderson locates it on his map approximately 73 kilometer from Nicholas Lake and 109 kilometers from Kamloops.2 It seems, as well, that the Red-Earth Fork may be synonymous with present day Princeton, as it was stated that the HBC men always called the area around modern-day Princeton the Red-Earth Forks.3
