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.

And this key is for the current map below it (same as the black and white one):

#2--St Michaels Cemetery
#3-- Creamery
#4--Zenner's Store was here
#5--Britz's Grocery
#6--The first Brandl Motors
#7--The HALL
#8--New water tower
#9--Aproximate old water tower location
#10--The ballpark
#11--The Post Office

Don't worry! The houses in the top left corner of town weren't there when YOU were little.

You're Welcome!
