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 newest OLD pics

This morning, I received SIX pages of family photos from Judy, many of 'em totally new to me. I gotta say, I'm eternally grateful to Aunt Rosie for writing names and dates on many of them, and to Judy for bothering, not to mention Judy's friend Terry for scanning and e-mailing them!

I almost don't know where to start...

but in the meantime, heres a 360 PANORAMA of the mill in the village we think they came from, Dolni Z'dar or Niedermuhl. (Once it loads, use your mouse to pan left or right, up or's pretty COOL!)
