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 building across from the Hall....

......has always been a mystery to me.

 Anon says it was "Dengel General Merchandise store, built by them in 1903, operated until 1907, then traded for a 240 acre farm 2 miles south of Buckman".

It seemed to be a warehouse sort of building when we lived there, and still seems to be storage for someone.  It's been kept up, and seems to have fresh paint every now and then....c'mon, it's 107 years old, and has to be owned by someone!
