Heinz BINDER lives in Austria, about 30 km (19 miles) from "our" area of what was Bohemia (Czech Republic). This week, he sent photos that we should recognize...lol It took me awhile.
A bit of background: In the 1790s, Paul and Veronica Hesch had 6 kids--two of whom
were Martin and Franz.
MARTIN was the father of Johann, our great great grandfather.
FRANZ was the father of another Johann:
This village was Klein Radeinles, and a Johann Hesch lived there, at # 14. His wife was Maria BINDER. (She was the daughter of Jacob Binder and Maria Wagner).
(I combined two of the photos to give a better idea of the village).
This is how Heinz is related to us ☺.
An interesting part of Binder history is the tradition of not allowing daughters to marry until a male heir was born. (I think I'm understanding this correctly). So, if a couple had F, F, M, F, M, then none of the Fs could marry until M or M had a boy child to carry on the Binder name. This created a whole LOT of angry single women in the Binder family over the centuries, and most likely quite a few reluctant, resigned nuns, too.
THANKS again, Heinz!
