Cemetery notes and/or description:
7 1/2 Miles North, 1/2 Mile East, of Bliss, Idaho The North Alternate Route of the Old Oregon Trail crossed the Snake River near Thousand Springs beginning in 1853 when Ed Taylor put in the first scow. It came past the present site of Tuttle crossing the Malad River, meandering as purposefully as the topography would permit, past the Bliss Point, over the Natural Bridges and down the north side of Clover Creek, across Bell Mare and on to the future site of King Hill Station. This cemetery is just a little east of the emigrant trail and the first burial was Mary Ann Miller in the early 1850s.

In 1938 concrete markers were placed at the Upper Clover Creek Cemetery by Bob Butler while he was Foreman at the CCC camp in Hagerman. At this time Mrs, C,A, Little was instrumental in getting Jack Keith and the BLM to fence the property.

June 11, 1986 BLM agreed Upper Clover Creek Cemetery belongs to the Hagerman Cemetery District so now can sell lots despite its Historical Status.

On June 2, 1990 new concrete markers with bronze plates were placed at the known graves that did not have legible stones, at both Upper and Lower Clover Creek cemeteries, by the Eldon Thompson, Frank Jinkins and Don Bard families with the help of Demaray Funeral Home and the Hagerman Cemetery Board.
