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.

Adam Mueller 1843-1920

Quoting from the bio of John P. Mueller in "the History of Morrison & Todd Counties, Mn." by Clara Fuller, in 1915--

"...Adam and Elizabeth (Midiels) Mueller...were born, reared and married in Germany. They came to the United Stated in 1884, and after landing at New York City, they came directly to Buckman township, Morrison county, Minnesota. In the native land, Adam Mueller followed the occupation of a wagonmaker.....purchased 40 acres, where he still lives.....He is engaged in general farming and stock raising. Mrs. Elizabeth (Midiels) Mueller died in 1894 at the age of thirty eight, leaving her husband and eleven children..."

Sue sent the obit and funeral card last night. Adam and Elizabeth Mueller were Ket's parents. (Ket married John Hesch).
BTW, the U with two dots above it is pronounced UE in English, so when the German letter isn't available in typeface, those letters are substituted for the U....hence, MUELLER. Still, in German, the name is pronounced "Miller" and seems to be interchangeable when written back then. Sheesh.
