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.

"4 Generations Otremba Family"

 Again, a tiny almost forgotten photo from the Atlases, labeled "Four generations of the Otremba Family".  Problem is,  that family was extensive, and it's hard to know when the pic was taken...or to recognize which Otrembas we're seeing.  Still, there are some clues:  the baby isn't dressed as a kid would have been around 1900.  This baby looks more 1950s/1960s, I think, as do the men (dad and grandpa).  A generation is figured at about 30 years, so daddy was maybe 30, and grandpa was about 60, and great-grandma might have been around 90.  'Course, those ages are statistical, not real--your results may vary.
If you recognize the people in the pic, please let me know.  I'd love to label it for future generations.
