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.

WHO was Armella Hesch?

It seems like some of our relatives from the Buckman area had an affinity with Washington and Oregon. When Larry found this obit, he asked who...? Well, of course, I didn't know, but the name "Buford Ficklin" was certainly distinctive.

Ahh, here's her mom's marriage to Buford. They lived in Portland, but went to Washington to get married, in October, 1948.

According to the obit, Anna's children were Rose, Margaret, Roman, Leo, Leona, Paul and Joseph Hesch.

Then, Sue sent this obit:

These were the children of Joseph Hesch, grandpa Anton's brother!

Anna, their mother, was Anna Heurung, who married John B Otremba after Joseph died, in October, 1926. John B died October 10th, 1948, and Anna married Buford on the 30th. Wow.

Armella was another child of Anna's...born in June of 1927.
