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.

All those old photos!

Since it snowed here last night and today's turned blustery again, I decided to sit down and actually identify the old pictures I have here. There are only two shoeboxes (one B&W pics, the other, color)...but oh MY, I'm so easily distractable! I've had to stop and scan some...sort them into "Dad" and "Mom" sets...put the connected ones together (like those I know were taken on their honeymoon)...and I'm doing it in pencil, because I realize I can be...wrong.

THEN, Sue sent a picture commemorating something that happened 50 years ago this Monday: the wedding of her uncle Jim Suess to Mary Jane Levandowski. Sue's mom, Joan, is third from the left, and her dad is third from the right. Cool, huh?

THANKS, Sue....
and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Jim and Mary Jane!
