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 History

Well now. We seem to be slacking off on HESCH discoveries lately, hm?
"What?" You ask, "Is Hesch History done? Are there no other connections to be made?"

Don't worry, fair reader--there are, and they'll be posted here as we uncover them, but for right now, Larry and I have turned our attention to my other grandparents, and a blog called JANSON .
Blogging about family, to me, seems like a great way to share our research and pictures in a relatively permanent format: right now, if you google "Hesch", you'll find this blog, and you'll be able to see if it's about "your" Heschs. And, if it isn't, you might be able to figure out how we connect.
Pictures posted online, too, are so cool: if you want a copy of any of them posted here, just right click the picture and "save as"....and now, it's in your personal file, too.
See ya soon!
