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.

"Who can we get to play the organ at our wedding?"

When a subject gets brought up here on HH,  it starts  a round of new searches online for mentions of that person, and that's exactly what happened last night with Sr Laura.

Larry asked if I knew she played the organ?
LOL--well, no, even tho I remember she was happy we were (more or less) taking piano lessons, saying we'd be happy we did later in our lives.  (We didn't believe her).

As proof, he showed me this article from the Brainerd Dispatch (Sept, 1962).

Of course, it also made us curious about Fort Ripley (the town), and why this couple were married in Onamia at the Mission church.
