Pearce Cemetery

 

The  40 acre Pearce Cemetery sits just west of Pearce, and has been in use since 1887. The Pearce Cemetery is still in use today.

 

One of the "residents" is a Civil War Veteran, Sgt. George Hart Platt, who served as Lincoln's Bodyguard.

 

Another famous resident of the Pearce Cemetery is Antonio Palma Sr 1883-1927. Antonio was a champion driller for the Commonwealth Mine in Pearce. This was proved during a competition in 1920. The rock he drilled sits at the entrance to the cemetery, and is the one in the photo.
