Bayhorse Cemetery
Custer County, Idaho

Contributed by Irene M Lawson, May 2001 [imlawson2@aol.com]. Total records = 11.

I transcribed the cemetery information from the book "This Quiet Ground".

Bay Horse is a ghost town on the Bayhorse creek. It was formerly Aetna. The Post Office was first established as Aetna, a name the assigned by the U S Post Office, because Bay Horse, having two words, was considered unacceptable.

By 1884 Bay Horse was listed as a post office name and Aetna was dropped. Now the name is written Bayhorse. The Post Office was discontinued in 1927. It is said to have been named for an incident in 1864. A prospector lost his bay horse and in his search discovered an outcropping of ore at the site. Information about Bayhorse was taken from; "Idaho Place names A Geographical Dictionary".
