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.

Wedding flowers

Having been a florist for 38 years, I naturally notice flowers in old photos--I can't help it.
With all the Hesch wedding pics posted here on HH, I thought it'd be fun to do a little quiz: can you tell what era each of the boutonnieres below are from? (10 years is an era for this). So, 1910s, 1920s, 1930s....? Bonus points if you name the chest they're pinned on...

Of course, there were some lovely bridal bouquets, but some of our brides wore corsages, and anyway, the flowers below don't correspond to the boutonnieres. Whose bouquets were these, from what 10 year period?
I'm pretty sure they've ALL been posted here in a larger size. The winner will recieve 3 times what dad paid us to help trim the poplars.
