Okay are you ready for this? I don't know if you have any of the info but. . .

There is a family cemetery in the city of Coeur d' Alene. It is called the Hope Cemetery and is also known as the Best Cemetery. It is located behind residences on Gilbert Ave between 7th and 8th streets.

Best, John David, died CDA age 30, born WI son of Alexander & Ellen Best, married to Laura Gates, had 1 daughter and 3 sons.

Cook, Monty, died September 1911, aged 2 days son of Paul C. Cook & Wife, Ruby (Best) Cook.

Granger, Foster age 67 07-06-1912 he died after requesting burial in Best Cemetery.

There are a lot of Best's buried in several of the other cemeteries in Kootenai County. If you would like me to find Obits on these just let me know.

I will also go back to the Hayden Lake Library and check the History of North Idaho book (1903) to see if they did a write up on the family.
