There is a Lee Smith, buried in the Mount Idaho Cemetery, Mount Idaho, Idaho County, ID. He is buried in Row 10, Plot 231, Block a-1. BUT, his date of birth and death are unknown...possibly only to the person identifying his death in this database. There may not be records for the burial.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=sm...;

This site:
http://files.usgwarchives.org/id/idaho/cemeteries/mtidaho.tx...
identifies the cemetery as follows:
Mt. Idaho Cemetery,
approximately 7 miles southeast of Grangeville, Idaho County, Idaho.
The cemetery sits up a small hill off of Highway 12 in the town of Mt.
Idaho. Go through Mt. Idaho and as you are leaving town, the highway
veers to the left, there is a gravel road to the right that goes up
the hill. The cemetery is on the left as you go up the hill.
Mt. Idaho was once a fort. All that remains today of the fort is the
brick chimney which is enclosed by a fence and there is a sign marking
it.
Based on the full description in this website, it doesn't appear the RAOGK volunteer can help much, if at all at this cemetery. There doesn't seem to be any cemetery records to prove or disprove this is the correct person. They could check for obituaries in Grangeville; BUT, if this family lived in Mt. Idaho, there probably wouldn't be one in Grangeville. Obits were not as common in 1919 as today.

Here is a child, stillborn, last name Smith, born/died December 1919 in Mt. Idaho. This "could" be the child found in the Mt Idaho Cemetery. The Death Certificate "should" identify the parents, #028082.

Obtaining the Death Certificate. I don't normally suggest ordering a Death Certificate, but it might be the only means to identify if the above is the correct person. BUT, this may or may not be the correct person. You knowledge of the exact cemetery and information about the family might eliminate this person. Or, you may wish to not pay the $14.00 to order the certificate.
--I checked the County government for Idaho County, their website identifies death certificates would be ordered through the State:
