After we have done our extensive research, everything we have found pointed us to Panther Key. We visit Panther Key and we begin to search for any signs of Gasparilla as well as his fortune.
As we comb through the area we come across grey rocks with oyster shells that are laid out from about 10 feet long to 4 feet wide. Nowhere else on the island did we find these types of rocks and shells.
What do we believe???
Finding most books and news articles that say Juan Gomez was buried in Panther Key, doesn't really prove that he is buried there. Knowing that Juan Gomez was married to Sarah during that time, that she might have been the one to help bury him on the island. Sarah was full blooded indian as far as we know which is why there would have been oyster shells mixed in with the gray rocks. Neither the gray rocks or oyster shells were found anywhere else on the island.
We have known of previous hermits that resided on Panther Key after Juan Gomez, but none of them were indian or would have been buried there.
Have we found the infamous Gasparilla's grave??? We don't want to say we are 100%, but we will believe that it is very possible that it is his grave.
