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.

Leo Hesch 1925-1972

Grandpa Anton Hesch had a brother named Joseph, who married Anna Heurung in 1912. They had 8 children before Joe died when a gun he was carrying "accidently" went off. Leo would have been 16 months old then.There's a part of me that wants to meet EVERY relative no matter how distant. Evidently a good part this contingent moved to Portland and beyond. (Larry found Rose's obit in California). Did any of them have kids? Do they know how they're related?  Do they care?
