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.

A Hiemenz question

Today I had a chance to talk with Marcy and Eddie Hiemenz again, and, with this photo in mind, I asked if one of Marcy's sisters had married one of Eddie's brothers?  
Yes, Marcy said, her oldest sister Eleanor married Eddie's brother Herman.  Oops!  That's not these two...but Josephine was a Czech, just like Marcy, and Victor is definitely Eddie's brother. Doesn't she look like Marcy, too?
   Couple weeks later, we got a note from this couple's daughter, Renee-YAY!  She said Josephine is Marcy's cousin, so no wonder they look so similar ☺.  Renee mentioned this photo of the Martin Czech family and said her grandpa is Michael, one of the sons in that pic, and Marcy's dad (Frank or Pete) is there too.
