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.

Nick C. Meyer 1900-1969

Here's an obit from October, 1969, for Nick C. Meyer.  The Meyer family (lucky them) are related by marriage to dad's family ( Heschs, Rauschs, and Otrembas) AND thru mom's family, the Jansons.

(Thanks in advance ☺).
