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.

Grandma's sisters

One of the old pictures scanned at the reunion:

All the SAND girls who attended the Golden Wedding in July 1960.

L to R: Magdalena (Lena) Block, Sr Theresita (Ann), Grandma Elizabeth, Veronica (Vernie Wintermeyer) and Sr Severine (Mary).

There were six girls in the family, and four boys. According to my tree, Angelica (Hiemenz) died in 1963 and Veronica died in 1970.
