Documentation of Cemeteries
In Kootenai County

Submitted by James H. Makovec

Cemeteries in Kootenai County, Idaho, in fact most of northern Idaho, have been documented and published over the past fifteen years or so by Alfred E. and Betty J. Shane, long time residents of Coeur d' Alene. Their compilations contained in "Kootenai County Cemeteries Vol. I and Vol. II" dated 1983 are considered one of the major source records for the County. The information on these web pages will rely in part on this reference and with current research on my part to update and verify their documentation.
 

 An initial update of the documentation of four cemeteries for the Kootenai County GenWeb Page has been completed. These include the St. Thomas Catholic Cemetery, the Kootenai County Cemetery or Paupers Cemetery, Hope or Bestland Cemetery and Prairie View Cemetery. Reference for this documentation comes from Alfred and Betty Shanes work, St. Thomas Catholic church records, the English Funeral Home, Coeur d' Alene Press Archives, and just plain walking through and documenting the Cemeteries in question.
