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.

Pitching Minnesota


 The above quote was in a booster booklet online, very likely ◄ this one, but it struck me as particularly Germanic, damning with faint praise.

 As tho nobody here is better than they need to be, you get out what you put in, but don't come here if you don't like to WORK.
Ya, just don't go expecting too much.
(How could a settler resist?)

Yes, I think those are potatoes at the bottom of the drawing.
