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.
