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.

The name HESCH

 See this?  What looks like "hnpf" is HESCH in Suetterlin script. We were looking for that odd squiggle and we (ok, Larry ☺) found the first HESCH record in the Cesky Archiv books, a Johann Hesch who married Agnes Proll in Schamers (Cimer) in 1839.  Here's my translation of it:

Cimer Book 13, page 5

4 June 1839
Johann Hesch, farmer, son of deceased Franz Hesch, farmer, of Oberschlagles #11 and Agnes, born Blaschko of Schamers #26
Agnes, unmarried daughter of deceased Jacob Proll from Schamers #82 and Ann, born Marzini in Schamers #35
Johann was 21 and Agnes was 24....and the rest truly IS history.
