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.

ANOTHER Mischke priest

Larry found this clipping from the Sauk Centre paper, 7 June 1951. This was Bernard, the nephew of Benno and Fridolin Mischke.

Oddly, I'd found a 2007 photo of him, when he was 81 and retired in Phoenix. We just had no explanation of who he was, then....
(BTW, 35 days!)
