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.

Why I'm not at the

Well, partly cuz my little town had fireworks last night that I saw from my own front yard, and partly cuz we just got home from seeing GK and A Prairie Home Companion 35th anniversary show in Avon, Mn. Here, he's talking to "the historian" of Avon, and right behind him is John McCutcheon getting ready for his set. Gawd, it was FUN...
...but the thought of more crowds right now is NOT appealing!
