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.

For what it's worth....

When Roger Weaver sent me pictures of Mathias Hesch's family in Waumandee, Wisconsin, he included this one. It's not only too dark to distinguish faces, but we have no idea WHO any of them
But, thanks to the miracle of online photo editing, we can see them now. Still no idea WHO!

Since Roger sent the picture, tho, one of em almost has to be Mathias, and maybe his sons Val and John, too, right? Click the pic to biggify--I'm voting #7 is Mathias, only cuz he has a beard.

Your guess is as good as mine. Ooo, and look: #8 seems to be wearing
