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 Suesses

Ok, follow me on this one....

There was a man named Andrew Suess who was married to Elizabeth Wurtzberger. They had 5 children: Joseph, Mary, Frank, Kattie and Brown Co. Mn.

And, there was a man named John Hesch who was married to Katie Mueller. They had five children, also: Mary, Agnes, Paul, Laura and Buckman, Mn.
Then, Elizabeth (Wurtzberger) Suess died, and John Hesch died.

Widower Andrew Suess, in 1927, married widow Katie (Mueller) Hesch.

Ok, so far? Not too confusing--happens all the time, right? Blended families and all that....

But then, Katie's daughter Agnes married Andrew's son Joseph....who WE know as Aggie and Joe Suess. Their daughter Joan (Suess) Gilles had a daughter they named Susan.
And THAT's our Sue!
Whew, my FamilyTreeMaker software is smoking!
