Thank goodness for the Works Progress Administration. In 1937, out-of-work writers were given jobs recording biographies of local pioneers and early settlers. What an invaluable legacy they created!
Here, John Schmolke interviewed Andrew Suess:
Who was Andrew Suess in HH? He was a widower who married Ket (Mueller) Hesch, the widow of John Hesch, in 1927. Later, his son Joseph married Ket's daughter Agnes, and they had two children--Joan and James.
And, Joan was the mother of our SUE!
