KOOTENAI COUNTY CEMETERY

[Also known as PAUPERS CEMETERY (original name)] Coeur d' Alene Press, 17 Jun 1937 Thursday: Set Aside Ground: The county commissioners today set aside a plot of ground, consisting of 12 acres as a county cemetery. The burial plot is located one-half mile west of the Huetter service station and is located on the north side of the highway. In 1976/77, the Pine Tree 4-H Club, with a grant from the Standard Oil Company of California, completed restoration and research on the Kootenai County Cemetery. Research was completed through English Funeral Home in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho and the names below are the persons listed as buried in this cemetery. This information came from the old Cassedy Funeral Home records now maintained by the English Funeral Home. In 1982/83, No official plotting was ever done and only one stone marker exists--belonging to John Edward Davis. The cemetery is no longer in use and the last interment was that of Delbert Lunsford on 22 May 1943. There is only one marker that is readable. Several white crosses have been put up on the plots but no indication as to who is buried there.

If you are looking for the obits of t he people, the library at NIC has a collection of all of the CDA papers on microfilm and a new wonderful reader. While this is not the oldest cemetery in Kootenai county it is the most unique since there are no headstones. But that is not surprising since the term "Pauper" refered to the poor people that could not afford headstones or even burials. Most cemeteries had a Pauper's section or another name, Potter's field.
