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.

More look-alikes

When I first saw a photo of great-grandpa Paul Hesch, I was struck by how familiar he looked. Well, SURE, you might
But the faces he reminded me of were my Aunt Katie's kids, in particular, Gary and Butch when they were kids.
These pics are from the 60s (none more recent unless they SEND ME SOME...ahem!), but look how similar:
LOL...'course, Gary here looks like Uncle Tony did at the same age, and Butch (below, without a smile) is almost identical. WOW. It's the eyes, I think....
