Silver Lakes Wilderness - Becker Hill?

I ran across the name of a hill that I haven't found on any topos or maps that I have access to. It's somewhere in the vicinity of Whitehouse, but it's probably a nickname used for a location. It dates to at least the 1950s and I was wondering if any of the resident keepers of ADK lore have heard of it or could point to it on a map.

Thanks for any suggestions.

It could be, but it was within easy walking distance of Whitehouse, so probably less than two miles.

Curious where you may have ran across the name...?
I’ve checked my sources but came up empty.
I do know that many old timers have/had their own names for many unofficially named land features throughout the Adirondacks...an age old practice that still occurs today by sportsman & bushwhackers. Some names seem to stick, others are only locally known by those who visit the area often & have chatted with others that do as well.

This is totally grasping at straws and not anywhere close to Whitehouse or the Silver Lake Wilderness, but I did find a Becker Hill in Washington County, NY. Right next to it is Whiteside Creek and just south is Meeting House Road. Maybe something got lost in translation?
