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.

December, 1916...or, Proof that Math was paid by the column-inch

CLICK to enlarge...

Well, great-uncle Math was getting his reporter sea-legs, it looks like. ( He claimed to have started reporting for the papers  9 years earlier in 1907). I was just re-reading the page on the right, where he makes maximum use of one incident,  an attack of appendicitis.
"Mrs Joe Wondro returned from Anoka Saturday, where she had an operation for appendicitis".
Then, farther down:
"Joe Otremba returned from Anoka Friday.  He was there with his daughter, Hattie, who had an operation for appendicitis"
and just in case you missed some part of the story--
"Mrs Joe Otremba returned from Anoka Friday, where she had been on a visit".

(And in other news, it's pretty cool the Fishermen in Buckman even had a president, don't you think? ☺)
