Follow TX 359 North from Pattison. Cross Bessies Creek, The cemetery is in the first property to the west.
Wendt Cemetery is on H. Miekeska's land. No phone. Go to his back door and knock loudly, he will be glad to show the exact location. In the event he is not home the cemetery is in a copse of pecan trees one hundred yards WNW of the house.
The condition of the cemetery is very poor. It will likely become inundated in the next decade. The over growth is so thick as to make it virtually undetectable.
I did a visual July 2, 2000. Most of the stones have been trampled by cattle. An 1977 recording shows 18 graves in total. These are what remain.
The origin is the Wendt family that migrated to the area in the 1860's. Little is known of present descentants. The family is not likely to be among the "Wendish" immigrants from Eastern Germany that settled further south in Texas and still preserve their dialect and customs.- Mark vanHudson
