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.

Fr. Fridolin P. Mischke, OSC

Looking thru a box of mom's stuff from a trip she took in 1939, I found this prayer card tucked between the postcards and matchbook covers....could this be the priest in the mystery Ordination photos?
This took place 67 years ago, yesterday. We'll have to do more research into the Mischkes now..

Later: YAY, I think we found our men! John & Theresa (Peschel) Mischke had 11 kids. Of them, two were nuns, and two were CROSIER priests, Benno (1912-1981) and Fridolin (1916-1999). The nuns were Hermina and Mary Mischke, so NOW, we have our "two Benedictines and two Crosier's" picture explained. This was June 1942:
