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.

A Photo discovery

Sue sent this top picture some time ago (lol...two weeks?) in a batch with other pictures of her great uncle Paul, John & Ket Hesch's son. We speculated about whether one of the boys here was him, and it probably was. It would have been about 1923 or so, when Paul was 15.

But, look at the background...the house, the porch and fence. And the building to the left. They were playing in front of the Schmolke house, no?
(Another computer miracle--yay!)
