Yes, the name of the county is "Siskiyou,"
No, we're not saying this just to confuse you.

March of eighteen-fifty-two it was created,
The origin of the name...even then...debated.

Perhaps from the French, "Six Cailloux," [cai'yoo]
Or maybe the Cree word for a "bob-tailed horse."
Currently, that's all Wikipedia can tell you.
...so this will remain unresolved too, of...
