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.

Here's a present for ya--a site I'd forgotten about--James Lileks' Minneapolis . It's really fun to look around downtown Mpls AND to see where the building was/is on Google Streetview.

--Posted in honor of the fact that I'm DONE mowing the *&$#!ing lawn for this week--YAY!!
