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.

OLD News from Buckman

Another of the MARVELS of the internet is entering names in a search engine and finding newspaper articles and links to photos from years ago with those names....from all over the USA.
Here are a few discoveries Larry's made lately:

The wedding of Roman and Emily Dehler in 1947. This is one of 3 "Emily"s my own precious daughter is named after.
This wasn't from a newspaper, but we'd been talking about the Store in Buckman, and Larry found Killian Zenner's picture!

From the Albert Lea MN newspaper in 1934.

Pierz was often misspelled as PIERCE in news articles across the country. This obit from North Dakota in 1963 makes a connection to Pierz--her husband Charles (Karl) was the son of Johann Otremba and Anna Rosina Hesch Schultz.
STRANGE fad: Turtle Painting! This was Oakland California in the summer of 1927.

A terrific service from Google: they've digitized whole books (once the copyright is lapsed) and put them online. This article would have been something a person paid to have included in the book, so of course a LOT of our folks aren't just LOOK at all the information!
