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.

I was wrong...

...but I didn't KNOW it at the time...

Remember the Doctor who lived with Schmolkes, and even had his office in their home? I thought his name was Guguin, but it was actually Seguin. In fact, Larry found his picture in a 1902 directory of professional Men of Minnesota. Wanna see?

THIS is the doctor who attended Paul Hesch after he fell from the wagon and broke his back.
