Total records = 76.

Houston cemetery was established about 1885, near the site of the mining town of Houston, Custer Co., Idaho Territory. Custer Co. was derived from Alturus Co. in 1881. After the railroad came to the Lost River Valley in 1903, Houston was abandoned, but the cemetery was used for several years, even after the establishment of the Mackay Cemetery, the earliest gravestone date being 1888, and the latest being 1987. There are probably a few earlier graves now unmarked.

In 1999 I transcribed from work done by S R Evans, later combined with public records found at the Family History Center, all used with permission. I last updated this work in Mar 2001.
