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.

Stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else

There's so MUCH in magazines from a hundred years ago that I think is neat:
Inspiration from 1904

What train whistles meant circa 1904  (Math Hesch's 2 long and 2 short was  their phone ring and had nothing to do with trains..altho, you were kinda 'crossing a road at a grade' on that corner, huh?)

A tool dad used a lot ☺ and that I thought was SO clever!

ALL the businesses in Sauk Rapids in 1880

I would have LOVED this set!
This ad brings so many questions to mind, like, how come the First Hawaiian Conservatory of Music was in NYC?
St Joe in 1898--my lot
wasn't even in town back then...

This is in honor of my nice niece Laurel who achived 29 last week--
she graduated from Tufts in Engineering, ya know!
