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 Bohemia

Wow!  We've been furiously researching lately, and not only for Heschs.  A family related to my mom's side came from Bohemia too:  my Janson grandfather had two sisters who married BRANDL men (Frances married John, and Rose married Joe).   Larry found a passport application online from 1907...oh heck, if you're interested I'll explain it all
