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.

Sylvester Hesch--1915

ASTONISHING: We were looking at a site last night called FIND A GRAVE --if you click, you'll find the listings for HESCH graves. The last one is this one:

1915? Could this be...? But no, it's not Anton and Elizabeth's missing child, because the twins were born in February 1915, and this grave is in the wrong (Pierz) cemetery.
So, whose child was this?
The only Hesch family in the area with the necessary space between kids was John and Ket.
Hmm...this'll go on my "needs looking up" list for the next time I go to St Josephs in Pierz .
