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.

The Minnesota Historical Society has a huge Visual Resources Database-- a collection of photographs online.  If you search "Morrison" there, you'll find quite a few store interiors from 1925.  Sadly, none are identified more than that, but they give us a glimpse of what merchants offered then.  It's REALLY cool!
