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.

Was Frank Mischke on the baseball team in 1925?

 Why, how perceptive of you!  As a matter of fact, he WAS.

  Sue sent this photo ages ago, and the Minnesota Historical Society has a copy too, overexposure and all.  (They're honor-bound not to mess with a photo, but I'm  We want to see the faces!)
(Much later: Look!  I found a decent copy of  the picture in the Pictorial Atlases of Morrison County, Minnesota--wow, huh?)

Standing: Ed Kohler--Red Sitzman--Hass Weisbrich--Bill Gohl--Conrad Kapsner--John Brausen--Kilian Zenner
Front: Peter Blake-John Terhaar-Frank Mischke-Sam Gnifkowski-Bill Pohlkamp Batboy: Raymond Blake
The names were provided by Anon, who knew many of these men when they were old, or knew their kids.

Some of the names we've seen before here on HH--like Kilian Zenner, Bill Gohl, Pete Blake and  John Terhaar--and in the center of the bottom row, Frank Mischke.
We're re-posting the hardware store pic for comparison purposes.  Larry remembered the team pic when we were looking at the hardware photo--he thinks one or more of Frank's customers could also be team members.

What do you think?

Oh, and here's another COOL bit of info Larry found: Evidently, someone kept a running list of telephone companies being organized in the US, and this notice was in the 1906 "Telephony" book:

YAY, Frank!
