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.

Oh YAY! More Center Valley info:

Whenever someone leaves a comment on any post on the blog, Larry and I get an email about it.  
Today, a woman who lives near Center Valley left TWO comments on THIS POST about the trip Sue and I took a couple summers ago to find the old store site.  I love that the info isn't being lost--it's here, online, thanks to people like her.
