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.

New history

My nice niece Laurel lives in NYC.  Her job took her to India  temporarily--but WOW--isn't it amazing that 5 generations and 140 years later, she can fly to a country Johann maybe never even heard of--for work?  Our world is strange and wonderful....

Anyway, back in New York, she has a money plant that needs watering every two days, so she left it with her Korean neighbor, John, who sent  this charming update on the plant's welfare:

Hi, Laurel.
How are you? What time is it now there?
Do you work on weekends there? I hope not.
I took a walk to Cnetral Park with your little botanic creature.
Both of us needed some sun light and I just came back.
But I wonder whether to bring a plant in the Park is so strange or not.
So many peple were interested in your plant.
At first, I put your plant a little bit far from me.
Then a guy approached to your plant and tried to take it away.
I stopped him and had to tell him that is mine.
So, I moved it near me and I got back to my book that I brought to read. 
But not a baby and a toddler have passed by without staring at it.
Some people told me it's a nice plant.
and some people asked me a few questions.
For instances, what that plant is and comes from and even someone asked me it's Marihuana????
Thanks to you, I had a very interesting experience.
I discovered that carrying a nice plant or not causes a big difference in the Park.
take care and stay healthy.

Thanks for sharing this, Kath ☺!
