Excerpt from History of Custer County, Idaho

Custer County was formed in 1880 from the counties of Boise, Idaho, Alturas and Lemhi, and was named in honor of General Custer, famous because of his part in the Indian fight known as Custer's Last Stand. It is located in central Idaho, with the county seat at Challis, so placed by popular vote in June, 1881. Challis won from Bonanza and Crystal by a majority of 19 votes, the latter being the closest. Many things have hap pened within the bounds of this county, of which no history has ever been written.

Probably the earliest events recorded deal with Indian troubles, a condition which is typical of all early history. It is said that H. F. Powell, while hunting, saw bones, but paid no attention to them. Later when Mr. Harland discovered them, he, by curiosity, picked up one of the skulls and noticed that some of the teeth had gold filling. This at once convinced him that the bones were those of white men, and he began an examination of the ground in that vicinity. Mr. Harland was not long in finding more skeletons. Only three could be found at first. Two were near together, in a hole, where, from all appearances, the fight took place. The third was found some rods from the others, and near it was a gun barrel, consider ably bent. 'l'his is reasonable evidence that the owner was endeavoring to escape and, being overtaken, fought a good fight in his efforts to stand off his assailants. The barrel of one of the other guns was bent also, as if it, too, had been in a hand-to-hand encounter. The guns were all muzzle-loaders -one a common rifle and the other of the pattern used by the army prior to the adoption of the breech-loaders. One bears the stamp on the lock, C. S. A. The other was a Harper's Ferry musket with the date of 3831.
