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.

Adeline Hesch Dion 1921-2010

I wanted to post this sad news right away so you can make plans to be there if possible.  
Adeline was dad's first cousin, the oldest of his Uncle Math's seven kids.  All seven had nicknames (see below), and Dad knew her best as 'Mate'.  He had to stop and think a sec if we asked about real
Adeline had the most infectious smile, and she was the one who remembered the name of Paul Hesch's horse....Rowdy.  We'll miss you, Adeline!

Here's the link to the obit on the Emblom Brenny funeral home page if you'd like to leave a message for the family...
