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.

Hesch History In Running For "Top 40 Genealogy Blog" VOTE!

Hi folks, Larry here.
Marlys would probably be too shy to come out and say this, it would sound just too self-promoting for her, but this very blog you are reading now has been nominated for inclusion in Family Tree Magazine's Top 40 Blogs list.
Marlys puts a lot of work and thought into this project so I'd like to personally ask the folks who read this blog and have perhaps learned more about your family or enjoyed an old picture or hard to find document from a musty archive in Eastern Europe to express your appreciation by following the link below, looking in category 10 and voting for the Hesch History blog.
My understanding too is that you can vote as often as you like so go back to that page when you think about it and, as they say "Vote early and vote often"

Thanks for reading this post and thanks in advance for your vote!
