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.

The Joseph Hiemenz Family

More pictures from the Pictorial Atlas!  These were gleaned from all three issues and the connection is Angelina SAND, grandma Lizzy's sister. Yeah, I think that's Lizzy as Angie's bridesmaid, in 1906.
The photo on the right is enlarged from the family portrait below.  Joe died in 1951 when he was 68, so this inset was taken in the 40s, most likely.

The family group picture was taken at a wedding, I bet.  Leona is wearing a hat and corsage, and the guys are all wearing suits...did one of Leona's kids get married in the 1960s?  That was probably the day ☺. Alfred's pic is the inset, made larger.
