Ora Cemetery
Ora (Ashton), Fremont County, Idaho, USA

 

In Ashton, State Highway 20, turn west on 1300 N, Frost Top Drive-In is on the corner.  Continue on road till you reach a dead-end where you have to go either north or south, turn South on 3125 E.  The road curves, and the cemetery will be on the north side of the road.  Total miles from Ashton to Ora Cemetery is 4.4 miles.

These records are complete as far as I could read the markers.

The records were gathered by me as I walked through the cemetery and wrote down what tombstones I could find.  July 2004.

The town of Ora, Idaho, was settled in the 1800's.  Today there is no trace of the town, the cemetery is surrounded by grain fields, there are farm houses scattered here and there.  The cemetery is bad shape, and is over grown with weeds.  The wooden markers have all but disintegrated, with only a couple remaining.  The homemade stone tombstones are beginning to crumble away.  There are a few modern graves, mixed in, but most have faded away, and no trace of them remains.

 

RECORDS: 7 markers are unreadable + 67 listed
