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.

At the Golden Wedding...

(Click the pictures to enlarge 'em)...

In July, 1960 (the last time we gathered at the PowWow Grounds in Royalton), we celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of Anton and Elizabeth Hesch, ever after referred to as "the Golden Wedding", like, "I remember what you wore to the Golden Wedding!" or, "They came from MONTANA for the Golden Wedding".
Their living sibs were there, of course--here are Grandpas: Matt, Rose, Sr. Laura (Theresa) and Ted. I think the woman on the right was one of Ted's daughters.

Remember the picture from their wedding with their witnesses?
(Scroll way down, it's on an earlier post).
Here's a picture of the four of them, fifty years later:
Theodore, Anton, Elizabeth and Magdalena.

Somebody organized a family picture that day:
Rosie, Henry, Matt, Katie,Ted, Fronie, Mike and Tony behind Grandpa and Grandma.
Sweet, even if it's way overexposed.
It only took about a minute for Uncle Tader
to push their heads together and crack everybody up!
