Petrasch burial sites

Post by zentull »

Rhiney was buried in Globe and Herman in Superior. Does anyone know the locations of those cemetaries? Also is Julia in the Greenwood Jewish cemetery or is there another?

I would guess that you will hear from Matthew Roberts, Greg Davis or Dr. Glover. Probably should add Novice and Roger to that group. It's amazing the things those guys know.

Hi: You are correct as to the locations of the burials of the two Petrasch's. Al Reser showed me the grave site of Herman Petrasch in Superior. It is marked by a granite head stone in the Martin family plott. Rhinehart's site was researched by Tom Glover. He and I went to Globe and with the help of the grave yard historian and the plott map we were able to locate the site. The grave was unmarked at the time but Tom and I were able to locate it by the two graves on each side which were identified. We put an outline of rocks around the grave and put Rhinehart's name on a rock for a head stone. You can find pictures of these two sites in Tom Glovers book: The Lost Dutchman Mine of Jacob Waltz, Part 2, The Holmes Manuscript, on pages 164 to l65. Tom Glover can provide you with details. For Julia, you will have to hear from Kraig Roberts. He is the one doing the research on this site. Cordially, Gregory E. Davis

Greg,

Nice post. Doubt anyone could ask for more. Your are actually the "source" that most of us depend on.

Hope all is well with you and your extra time is all good. Not flying so much?

Take care,

Joe

Thank you Greg and Matthew. I will probably do a run out to Superior and Globe this weekend. Did a runner through last thursday on the way to Show Low and the weather was warm, but still nice.
