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.

A few uncles & aunts...

Wow! They were so young here. Wearing boutonnieres probably meant it was someone's wedding--maybe the guy in the middle, huh?
Uncle Henry Hesch, Uncle Eddie Janish, and dad, Mike Hesch. Probably late 40s?


In this photo, Uncle Henry's wearing the same suit and tie, so it's probably the same day.
Uncle Henry with Uncle Tony. Oh, and there's the wedding car!
Same cars and barn in the background...same day! Does anyone know who 'Bernice' is?
(Uncle Eddie said Bernice was a friend of Aunt Rosie's, from the cities ☺  Another mystery solved!)
Awww! This had to be earlier: Looks like a photo booth picture, huh? If you number these four left to right, they are:
Aunt Irene Janish, Uncle Tony Hesch, Aunt Rosie Hesch and Uncle Eddie Janish.

#1 and #2 married each other, and so did # 3 and #4. Our family had two brothers and a sister (Heschs) who married two sisters and a brother (Janishs).

Took me years to figure that out.

Thanks, Judy!
