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.

Buckman, Incorporated

Looking at the names on the 1902 plat map of Buckman, and comparing them to names on the incorporation roster in 1903, I realized 1) how free and loose they were with spelling those names, and 2) how familiar most of the names still are.
Funny, I see only one couple there, the Mischkes, but which Mischkes? You'd think that notary would have KNOWN
