HABERMEHL CEMETERY

Located on the San Jacinto Battle Grounds,Deer Park,Texas, just south of the reflection pool. 1890-1978. The Brashear family sold land to Conrad Habermehl in 1860 (Deed Records, vol. w, p. 567). The Habermehls built a two-story home on their property, close to the location of the present day monument. The group of trees about two hundred yards to the northwest of the monument still surrounds the graves of the Habermehl kin and friend's. Near the graves there was once a stable and dairy shed. The State of Texas condemned the Habermehl land so it could be part of the State Park. (History of the McCormick League and Areas Adjoining the San Jacinto Battle Ground by Robert Cartier and Frank Hole, Part 1, 1972)

WUNSCHE FAMILY CEMETERY

The mid-1840's brought German immigrant Carl Wunsche from Saxony to Spring,Texas which started around 1838. Farmer's brought their cotton to Charles Wunsche's gin near town. Charles and Dell Wunsche built the WUNSCHE BRO'S SALOON and HOTEL in 1902, with lumber from their own sawmill. Their brother William Wunsche, Sr., Ralph Hanks and Voress Bonin constructed it. Two stories high it stands today as the Spring Cafe. Spring's legacy from the Wunsche family include Wunsche Middle School, built on land donated by the family. A less conspicuous landmark, a very special plot of ground on a tiny knoll in front of the Spring High School and beside I-45 is the Wunsche Family Cemetery.
