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.

LOL...Blog/Family Crossover

This couple is Hubert S. WELLE and Anna SAND, on their wedding day in 1897.  They settled on the WELLE family farm in Spring Hill, Stearns Co, Mn, and had 13 children, 11 of whom lived to adulthood and had kids of their own.  Those kids had a Welle/Sand reunion in 2003, in Freeport, Minnesota.

Their son Hubert J Welle married Dorothy Janson, and there's my problem...should I post this story here or on the JANSON blog?  Anna would have been a cousin (not a sibling) to great grandfather Mike Sand, and I think there's more room over

Check it out if you're interested.
