Jacob "Lost Dutchman" Waltz
Birth: 1808, Germany
Death: Oct. 13, 1891
Phoenix
Maricopa County
Arizona, USA

Jacob Waltz was born in the kingdom of Wurttemberg, Germany, circa 1810. He immigrated to the USA in the 1840s and became a naturalized citizen in 1861. By 1864, Waltz was prospecting in Arizona and is reputed to have found a gold deposit near the Superstition mountain, known now as the legendary Lost Dutchman Mine. In 1868, Jacob Waltz was living as a humble farmer on the North bank of the Salt River which runs through Phoenix. He died on October 13, 1891 and was buried in the Southwest corner of City Cemetery. (bio by: Jeff M. Sullivan)
