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.

Sand Papers

"..smoothing the edges of the family tree ☺"
Yesterday, Christa sent a huge amount of pioneer information about Joseph Sand and his descendants.  There are "folklore" questionnaires that older citizens were asked to fill out for "Saskatchewan's 50th anniversary in 1950.  These were compiled into books in 1955, while many more were published for the 75th anniversary 1980-1981". (Saskatchewan GenWeb site).
There's also part of a history written by Fr Syl Lewans and published for an anniversary--maybe his parents' 50th?  
Larry and I have only begun to read all of it--work cruelly cuts into genealogy time--but the weekend starts tonight.

BTW, the title of this post is directly from Larry, as a possible title for any Sand who starts a blog about that  It's free, honest!
