HOORAY!! The blog's turning into a virtual reunion ☺!
This weekend, I heard from a daughter of this man...but here's the quick version of how they fit:
Paul Hesch & Mary Otremba had a son, JOHN (in 1878)
John married Ket Mueller and their third child was PAUL (or FRANK) (b 1908)
Paul F. & Anna Valentine had a son named RAYMOND ( in 1931)
Raymond had two daughters, Elizabeth and OUR new connection, DEBORAH! (1955)
Raymond didn't talk much about life in Minnesota, and sadly, he died when Deborah was 18. She really had no idea any of us existed, until she googled HESCH!
If anyone has more photos or recollections of John & Ket's son Paul, or Paul's son Raymond, please send them to me--we're building a pretty cool record of Hesch History right here on the internet!
WELCOME to the family, Deborah and Elizabeth!!
