On my HESCH family tree, I have seven men named Paul. The earliest was born about 1760, the latest in 1965, but heres one born in 1914.
From what I can tell, this Paul was the son of grandpa Anton's brother Joe (who died in October 1926). He wound up in Brainerd, and he obviously enjoyed playing "Paul Bunyan" for their summer festival. The page I found this on says "It was big Paul Hesch with his big black beard that most demonstrated the legendary character that gave the extravaganza its' name--Paul Bunyan".
He does look familiar, doesn't he?
