Kootenai County is in the Northern (Panhandle) portion of the State of Idaho (USA). It is about 199 south of the Canadian border and is adjacent to Spokane County, Washington (About 30 miles east of Spokane Washington).
Of course the first actual people in this area were the Native Americans and then the fur trappers. There was a military fort (Fort Sherman) at the location now Coeur d' Alene (Core Dah Lane)
I have been looking up families and information for people as a hobby. No charge. Please let me know what other information you would like.
