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 reunion pics

The pictures taken that day are trickling in....s-l-o-w-l-y. I know there were people with cameras beyond Joanie and me. Send them along, ok?

Louise(Mike's cousin), Kathy(Mike's daughter) and Laurel (Kathy's daughter). I think Laurel was the person who came the farthest to attend. She lives and works in NYC. YAY, Laurel!!
Sitting: Lois (Mike's daughter), Aunt Eileen (Matt's wife) and Louise. Behind Louise are Rich and Mary (Aunt Katies kids).
Argh...these are Aunt Katie's descendants, but the only one I'm sure of is Betty, in the red shirt. It's tough to keep track of let me know by email or in the comments and I'll add names, ok?
