Wendt Family  Cemetery

Source of information
One print source was used for information for Wendt Family Cemetery as it appears on these web pages.  It appears to have been provided by three Junior Historians --  Research by Barry Barksdale; typed by Marcia Branstetter; and edited by Laurie Rothhammer.  This document was published by the Willamson County Historical Commission as:

Williamson County Historical Commission.(WCHC). (1981). Williamson County Cemeteries.Vol. IIIA.

Additional comments from the printed source are confusing.  One note says the editor was not able to contact the person who submitted the listing.  The question is raised that perhaps the cemetery was not located  in Williamson County.  A note that was written by L. Faubion on 12/31/85  reads, "Mrs. Mozelle Smart Huling of Florence writes that this cemetery is about two miles down the road East of Theon, then about two miles into the pasture (on the right).  She did not identify owner of land.  She was told one could not drive there, and suggested someone go by horseback (?).  No one has made any attempt to do so."   However, the Junior Historians while noting the condition of the cemetery, wrote, "It has since been replaced by a chain link fence."  A map of the cemetery is included, but there is no information as to the source.  Given the information I have, I believe Barry Barksdale likely visited the cemetery, collected the data and did the cemetery map.

The data represent the source document as closely as possible.  While measures have been taken to insure accuracy, mistakes may exist.  Please report errors to Rebecca Osborne.

History of the Wendt Family Cemetery
"Oliver and Clemmie Wendt were the founders of the ranch.  Their plot was a double plot with a statue that was erected after the grave was built.

The cemetery was originally surrounded by a steel bar fence.  It has since been replaced by a chain link fence.  The cemetery is not well kept, but is a very interesting place.  It is composed of the family of Oliver and Clemmie Wendt."
