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.

Out, Standing in the Field

LOL...there must have been film left on the roll:

Math Hesch, probably in his 20's, near a corn field. He's looking down at the photographer, so it might have been a kid taking the picture?

Awww, Uncle Leo and Aunt Fronie (Hesch) Karash, probably in the field east of the house. Did they ever grow flax?
