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.

Angeline Sand Hiemenz 1884-1963

Last week, I got a whole set of Hiemenz family photos from Angie's granddaughter, Renee.  (Angie, to refresh your memory, was grandma Lizzy's sister.  In the sepia family pic, Lizzy's the kneeling kid in front).  While I can't identify most of the people in em, we love figuring stuff like this out ☺. 

I don't recall grandma smiling much, but it looks like Angie did, alot, and her family seemed to be enjoying themselves in most of the pics.  We'll pop them in posts as we figure out names, but here are a few cool pics of Angie and Joe Hiemenz and family:

THANKS, Renee!!
