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.

Google News comes thru again

Did you know that Google has old newspapers as well as old books?  And happily, Larry remembers to check once in awhile to see if there's anything we haven't seen yet ☺ YAY, Larry!

Adeline (or Helen?)...Louise...Dolores the bride.....Holka (lookit that face!)...and Laura, I think.
Oh yeah, they had a good


Added later:  more online stuff about Dolores!

So, Larry started investigating online--where did Dolores go to school, what was she doing in Waukesha, Wisconsin, etc.  He found her in a a yearbook from Crookston, Minnesota, and we finally figured out that Dolores was the school nurse there, in 1953-54.  Cool, huh?

Dolores left after a year, I guess.  Here's the notice ► from the local newspaper, but isn't it odd that they rarely use the school's name?  

Ahh, it was the.....
