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.

Who owned that motorcycle-with-a-sidecar?

Some of these pictures are from a source I haven't thanked before: dad's cousin LOUISE . (One problem of pictures scanned from different albums is that it's hard to know WHO's

This cute picture is of sibs Math, Mary, and Theo--a hot day, washing up at the pump, being Larry thinks Mary looks like she could keep up with those two just fine...
This picture could have been the same day? Theo's still wearing bibs and that hat....

AND, the motorcycle looks like it could be the same one we saw loaded with kids at the John Hesch farm, huh? Above, Math's "driving", with his wife Mary in the sidecar, then Theo with the grain scoop, and Paul Doyle, as a kid!
COOL pictures! THANKS, Louise!!
