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.

More about Buckman Mercantile

An article from the end of 1930...was this the Mueller building that Hartmanns were renting, or was it the store they built after the 1927 fire?  LOL..we need to hear from Anon! 

(Any guesses about who found this article? ☺ )


May 21st--Anon says "Herb Hartmann rented [Muellers] the summer and fall of 1927. By winter his store was completed and he was back in it. So, the robbery took place in the new store, later to be Britz Market, that is by 1947, when Herb's dad, John bought the place".
THANKS, Anon!! ☺
