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.

Something old, something new....

There must have been a fad in the mid-teens to have a pic taken in your best winter-wear. This is Mary and Lucy Hesch about 1915 (I'm guessing) when they were both about 20.
And this is Lucy Hesch, probably about the same time. Could be what she was wearing under that coat and stunning hat?
Here's the NEW part: pictures from the reunion. This is Aunt Eileen (Muyres) Hesch and 3 of her grandkids: Bev's sons, John and Ken, and Carol's daughter, Laurie. We really missed Sherri and Melody!

You've seen two of these faces before--Stephan Pozel and John Hesch--but on the left is Julie, daughter of JohnnyBoy, sister of John, and wife of Stephan. lol...I may have met Julie when she was a little girl, but neither of us remember it...
All of these photos are courtesy of Joanie Dion--a HUGE thank you to her!
