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.

Christmas Eve

Mackintosh's Toffee really has no connection to Christmas except that Marion sent boxes of it when she lived in Canada.  It's wonderful buttery stuff that came in a red plaid box.  We hoarded it, tho I don't remember "getting up in the night for it".  I do remember buying it at Glacier National Park when I worked there in the late 60s, and that it was 25¢ a bar.
Anyway, it reminds me of Christmas, and that's gut genug.  Hope yours is a delightful one...!
