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.

Niedermuhl and Oberschlagles Today

I can hear you thinking, "Now WHERE were the villages Heschs came from again??" Well, thanks to GoogleEarth, we have this:

They're still there. See why you could claim either village as home, and still be right?


BTW, happy July first--we have 38 days till the REUNION!!
