John H. Buitman
Was Born in Hanover Germany in 1833 He came to America in the 1850s and worked in several mines in the Virigina City & Gold Hill Nevada area until his death on March 7th 1879 by the premature detonation of the dynamite he was setting.
It took almost a week for them to recover thev bodies of John and his helper Damon Lee (Chinese??)
The Attached Photo of John is Courtesy of the Wild West Museum (Now Closed) Of Virginia City NV. Who were kind enough to let me copy it.
A Photo of his Grave stone will be added next year when I go back to Nevada to get it.
The Other two photos are to show you what the Gold Hill NV City Cemetery looks like today.
