I just stumbled on this thread. Regarding the origin and meaning of "Adirondack," there is no conclusive answer. Historians differ on this, even if it was a derisive term. If you are interested in an in-depth (and, IMHO, most thorough) discussion of this topic, see:

"Adirondack: Of Indians and Mountains, 1535-1838" (2007) by Stephen B. Sulavik
Better than sitting at home in a beanbag, eating Cheetos, and watching infomercials
