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.

I see I need to post pictures in a small size so that they're clickable--so they bigify when you click on the picture.

I'll do that from now If there's one that's already here, and you want me to make clickable, just leave it in a comment, ok?

(I went back and re-loaded the Grandkids picture in a small version, but it didn't it's back in the "large" size. Still, the pic of Mathias Heschs' gravestone DOES work--go figger!)
