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.

Chicken for supper

This was probably taken in the 50's, and it's SO grandpa! The coveralls, that hat, the ever present dog, and no I don't recognize the building behind him for sure, but it might have been the tool shed/granary between the house and barn...or else, the picture was taken at one of his kids' farms. Who had that wagon, behind the dog?
"Pa, wir brauchen Fleisch für das Abendessen, werden Sie töten einem Huhn?"
("Pa, we need meat for supper--will you go kill a chicken?")
