Bayhorse Cemetery

Cemetery information was taken from the book "This Quiet Ground".
Bay horse - Ghost town on the Bayhorse creek. Formerly Aetna and Bay Horse. The Post Office was first established as Aetna, a name then assigned by the U S Post Office because Bay Horse, as 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. 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. - "Idaho Place Names, A Geographical Dictionary".
