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.

Lucy and Max Klein, Math and Holka Hesch

This photo would have been from about 1925, during Prohibition. Math (sitting) looks pretty much like he did in the Moonshining post from last month, but the really COOL thing about the picture is that his sister LUCY is pictured, with her husband, Max Klein.

Larry and I couldn't find much about Lucy except for a newspaper article from 1934: But NOW, we have a photo of Lucy at 28, & Max at 31 years old, and of Holka at 30.
Oh, yes, there ARE more pictures!
