There's one thing definitely true about Finn Rock-it was named for Benjamin F. Finn. Finn was an early McKenzie River area settler from Missouri who said that
before he moved to Oregon he worked on the Mississippi River as first mate for Grey Eagle steamboat. Finn's job required him to break up fights between
co-workers. The slang of the Mississippi River workers of those days called such peace-keepers a "huckleberry." Ben Finn said all of this could be confirmed
with a certain fellow he met on the Mississippi, a Mr. Mark Twain.
