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.

After 25 years...

...aunt Fronie was pretty proud that she could still get into her wedding dress, even if it wouldn't/didn't close in the back. 

The veil she wore in 1947 was borrowed, but luckily she had a lace curtain to wear for

 of course the liquor behind her on the cupboard wasn't totally responsible for all the laughing that night.

Still miss ya, Frone!
