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.

There are fifteen days left till the reunion, and things are coming together nicely.
One of my clients listened to me chattering about hoping Shirley would bring her mom's beans (and was tired of hearing me go on and on about it, I suspect) that she volunteered to make a gallon of baked beans for me to bring that day. So what if we have two crock pots of beans??

AND, another client is moving to assisted living, so we were cleaning out her house, and THERE, in her cupboard, was a Whoopee John 'forty greatest hits' tape! WOW --she insisted I take it--LOL!

And, I found a reunion outfit at Fleet Farm --life is GOOD!

We know there are folks coming from Chicago, Minneapolis, North Dakota, and Wisconsin (besides Minnesota), and hopefully from Nebraska, Washington and Oregon, and that some of those people have never met relatives from the Hesch side....

Oh, man--this calls for good behavior--can we do it??
