Kuhlmann Family Cemetery

By George E. Wolf Jr./2009

Kuhlmann Cemetery

This was a family cemetery for the Kuhlmann family, but is possible that some of the neighbors were also buried there. John H. Kuhlmann and his wife Minna owned that land. Their homestead was right off Calhoun Road.This where the Kuhlmann farmhouse was located. John H. Kuhlmann was born in Harris County around 1857. His children were named Christian, Katherine, Mary, Adolph, and John T. Kuhlmann.
John T. died before his father and two children did not survive childbirth.
The land that the cemetery is on is two acres, but the cemetery itself is only 30'x30', so there probably aren't that many family members buried there.

From At Rest by Trevia Wooster Beverly

"KUHLMANN CEMETERY: 4001 Roseneath and Oakcrest, in old Riverside Terrace. Late 19th century settlers' cemetery. Only a low brick wall remains; all graves transferred to Forest Park Lawndale. Johann Frederick Kuhlmann had already buried his first wife and two children in the two-acre private cemetery when he died in 1883."

I went out to the Kuhlmann Family Cemetery today on Roseneath. Went back in the woods where the cemetery would be. Near the back of the woods, next to a small gully is the 30' by 30" wall of hand-made bricks. The brick wall was in a fair to bad shape. This is were the graves of this family would be. There are no markers in this area. BUT down a small slope in the gully is two marble stones that would be from the cemetery. The large one is to heavy to turn over to see if it has a name on it . The other small one is blank. These may be the bases to the gravestones that once were there. I don't think the graves have been moved. I could be wrong. George E. Wolf Jr.
