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.

Two articles you'll love

"The Pacific coast is only twelve days from Lake Michigan by bus..."  Wow, how could  you resist a come-on like that, especially when THIS was the bus?
Anyone who's worked at Glacier National Park (Hi, Noob!) or visited there will recognize the tour bus in the picture.
I believe you'd think "endless twelve days" rather than "only"....but its a cool illustration, anyway, right?
I think it's from Technical World Magazine, which eventually became Popular Mechanics.
(So, ok, this is not an article, and I have no idea which issue the drawing came from.  Still, you'd love Technical World if you flipped thru an issue, I just know it.  HERE'S the one from April, 1905.  See??)

 And THIS article is from the American Bar Association Journal,  March 1963 issue.  It's by a young lawyer named John Simonette, and it's pretty funny....(click to enlarge).

Thanks to Larry for finding this ☺
