Sharing Saturday: The Chinese in Sonora

Today’s post comes from the Sonoran Jackrabbit who focuses on cemeteries and markers throughout Southern Arizona. While the site doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a while, there are still some photos and essays on it that are worth browsing through.

Here’s a fascinating one on the Chinese section of Globe Cemetery in Gila County, Arizona.

“The number of Chinese in Arizona never attained the numbers that immigrated to California so they lived in very small groups and did not become large societies with a cultural support systems. So the small faction of Chinese in a small town like Globe were productive, industrious workers or shop keepers that learned to blend in and remain low key.”
