Wunsche Family Cemetery
Harris County, Texas

Contributed by George Wolf Jr. [gwshistory@webtv.net]. Total records = 12.

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.
