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.

Google Earth

Oh, MY!  If you want to see Buckman as it is today, download Google Earth to your computer and search "Buckman, Mn"--wow!  There are little cameras along the streets, and double clicking each one advances your position, where you can look all the way around you--its amazing and WAY fun.  The only weird thing is that any people who happened to be captured are blurred out.  You see vehicles and yards, open doors and businesses, but not one soul!

It'll give you a much better idea of what we're talking about here, too!
