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.

Just because I can...

LOL...making Christmas presents for the grands from a 30 year old pattern....aren't they CUTE?


  1. Breeder Pig lives!!!!

  2. I thought it was the Big Wig Pig!

  3. Marlys,
    That is a great gift! Is there a "messing with fabric" gene in the Hesch family? I think I may need to get that pattern ...

  4. LOL..hi Deborah,
    You can see by the other comments (my sisters or niece) that the pig family was a big hit 30 years ago too. ☺ I'll definitely send the pattern if you really want it. Email your address, ok?
    YAY!! Another fabric messer in the fam!

  5. I would like a copy of the pattern as well, so that 30 years from now I can make it for my own granddaughter:-) Breeder, the 3rd generation...
