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.

Val & Lena's kids

There were five children born to Valentine and Lena--these four plus Elizabeth, the youngest. From the angle of the picture and the looks on their faces, she was probably behind the camera, huh?

BTW, in 1936, Lucille was 13, Rudolph was 26, Edna was 25 and Leonard was 16, so Elizabeth would have been 10. And look--the guys already have "Hesch hands"!
