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.

From the Pierz Journal in 1927

It's 1927, John's died, and his widow has re-married. What to do with the store in Buckman? Sue found this ad:


I know you're asking yourself, "Why so MUCH stuff about John?" Well, because a cousin with pictures was heard She, of course, has researched her own grandpa, while we've researched mine.

Others (i.e., Laura, Louise and Irene) had pictures to share about their dad, so HE got a lotta space here.

I's unfair! But trust that I'll post whatever pics you send, as long as they concern the HESCH family from my generation back in time...ok?
