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.

"Sr. Laura's home--let's take a picture!"

Well, if nothing else, Sr Laura provided a sense of occasion. We probably each have at least a few later photos with her with our own families, right?
Dunno who this kid is, but the photo came from Sue, so it's probably one of John's kids. St Laura professed her final vows in 1910, so the time frame's right.

This had to be at Anton's funeral.

(I've posted this one before, but just noticed that Ted took the picture. His wife Rose (Dehler) Hesch is on the left, and--see? His hat shows at Sr Laura's

(Yup, posted before too).....

....but this one includes brother Joseph Hesch, who died by accident less than a year later, in October, 1926. (John died in January, 1926).
