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.

Aunt Eileen

My sister Lois was baptized in August, 1947, and these are her godparents pictured that day: dad's brother Matt and his wife Eileen (Muyres) Hesch.  Matt died in 1984, but Aunt Eileen will celebrate her 90th birthday on Sunday.  It's a SURPRIZE party, so if you call her, don't blow it!


It was a GREAT party--and a total surprise. 
Happy 90th to a pretty wonderful aunt!
