Zion Lutheran Cemetery
Deary, Latah County, Idaho

Lat: 46° 47' 20"N, Lon: 116° 35' 20"W
T39N R2W Sec 21

Transcribed by Maggie Rail, © Jun 15, 1999, last updated Feb 11, 2010 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 172.

To reach Zion cemetery from Hwy 8 driving between Deary toward Troy, turn left onto Olson Loop Road at the sign. The cemetery is about a mile further to your left, then up the hill just a short distance to the entrance.

The land for the original site of the Zion Lutheran Church and Cemetery, was donated by Mr Andrew Olson, a member of the first board of trustees. It was surveyed by the county surveyor Mar 29, 1906 and the deed recorded Nov 12, 1906.

Volunteers began construction of the new church early in the summer of 1906, the first service was held in it about the first of November of that year. The building was on the south side of the tract, and the cemetery was on the north half. This site was chosen because there was no town of Deary to speak of at that time.

The Church was dismantled and moved to Deary about 1923. This information was provided by Delores Ruby Collinge, a granddaughter of Andrew Olson.

I walked the cemetery on May 30, 1999, doing a complete inventory of all existing headstones. I did a second survey using a digital camera on Jun 16, 2005. The stones were even harder to read, and appeared to lack care.
