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.

Tiroler Buam Polka

I'm pretty sure the point of this polka is to play it as fast as you can. (There are a number of videos of this song on Youtube, and they're all playing "mach schnell"

Heinz, what does 'Tiroler Buam' mean? (Ah! He says it means "Tyrolean Boys" ☺ )
