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.

It seems like YEARS!

How odd that, here, we're dealing with the family in the past two hundred years, and still, being offline for six days seemed like an eternity! lol
I had a "massive virus" on the computer, took it in for repair, and there was problem after problem....
But, TG, it's fixed!
One really good thing that happened because of the virus was that yesterday, they said, "Can you find something to do for another hour?"--ARGH!--so I finally stopped at the Benton County History Museum. Oh MAN, the place is LOADED with info about Langola township, including
Karashs and Kleins and Gottwalts. They close at 4PM, which is exactly when I arrived...but Mary the director showed me stuff and chatted till almost five! Whew--I'll go back SOON--during business hours.
