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.

Have they ALWAYS been the Buckman Billygoats?

This was 1925 and we're trying to figure out WHO these men are.  Most likely, one or two were employed at Brandl Motors?

Why, YES, they were!  Anon is "95% sure" these men were:
Back Row: Ed Kohler - Red Sitzman - Hass Weissbrich - Bill Gohl - Conrad Kapsner - John Brausen - Kilian Zenner
Front Row: Peter Blake - John Terhaar - Frank Mischke - Sam Glfnifkowski - Bill Pohlkamp
Batboy: Raymond Blake
Oh, and no, they were not always the "Billygoats"--in the 60s and 70s, the team was called the "Bucks", and after that, the "Saints".

WOW--thanks, Anon!!
