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.

ANOTHER mystery!

(Click to enlarge )
Judging by the apparent ages of Carol, Bev, Rich and Bob in this photo, it was probably taken when dad returned from WWII (he was inducted in June of 1942, and honorably discharged in September of 1945) it couldn't have been earlier. The question is, WHO is the man on the left?
My first impression was Aunt Katies' Gary, but he wasn't born till '47! Was it his dad? Emails to Gary and Bob (I'm avoiding last names of living persons, ok?) didn't tell me either, but Bob thought it was Uncle Tony....what do YOU think?

  1. It's Uncle Tony! Who else would it be? All the sibs are there plus Aunt Millie (I think) and Aunt Eileen and the assorted grandchildren in front.
