Clapper Creek is the location where Peter Lassen and Edward Clapper were murdered in 1859.[1][2]

Fairfield (p. 171) writes:

"At the Black Rock range they camped one evening beside a small stream ever since known as Clapper creek. The camp was in a nook of the canyon overlooked by high bluffs on three sides There was a little feed for the horses and the place was a very pleasant if in those times dangerous location for a camp."
