This branch of the Austrian Hesch family is descended from Johann Hesch and his wife Marya (Schlinz) Hesch, who came to America from Oberschlagles, Bohemia with three sons: Paul, Mathias, and Anton. +++Johann & Marya settled in Buffalo County, Wisconsin but moved to Pierz, Mn in about 1885. .+++Mathias settled in Waumandee, Wisconsin and moved to Pierz in 1911. +++Anton never married but farmed with his dad in Agram Township, where he died in 1911.+++And Paul, my great grandfather, settled five miles away, in Buckman, Minnesota. He died there in 1900.

Familiar Faces...

Who do you recognize here? The picture was taken on Lois' baptism day, so August of 1947. I recognize Grandpa and Grandma Hesch, Uncle Matt and Aunt Eileen, Bev and Carol, and Uncle Henry and dad. (The man on the far right is my other Grandpa, Anton Janson, and I think the man next to him is his brother Sebastian). The woman on the left might be Grandmas' sister Veronica (Sand) Wintermeyer. That leaves two women and the little boy I don't recognize...any guesses?
