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.

Diagram of the OLYMPIC

I've noticed that people are googling for this illustration, so here it is, in a clickable form.
The website Larry found it on seems to have removed it, so this is a public
(Hesch background: This is the boat Math and Theo took, round trip, to Europe in 1914. See "Diary" on the "Labels" sidebar.
The Olympic was the Titanic's sister ship, meaning it was built to the same specs, but improved some. Math and Theo returned home in June, and WWI started in August of 1914. A few months later, the Olympic was re-fitted as a troop transport ship).
BTW, I'm referring to this pair of brothers as 'Math and Theo' to distinguish them from their twin nephews, Math and Ted.
You're welcome!
