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.

Various stuff ☺

April, !912--so grandma Hesch had a hired girl the summer 
she was expecting dad!

Was the Bijou next to the Funhouse? 
Look: Larry found that "Minnesotans Frank Faust and Tony Wolke" had a theater in Forsyth, Montana starting in 1922!  A brother to John, maybe?

Did Nick Mueller ever hear the end of this?  And was a bad year just expected once in awhile?  It makes me think of Colony Collapse Disorder these days.

Oh wow, here're the only pics I have of of Aunt Katie (Hesch) and Uncle Blaise Sufka--the wedding pic (c 1940?) says on the back "Mike Hesch, me, Katie and Blaise".  I don't know who "me" was.
The later pic must have been their 25th wedding anniversary...from the atlas, of course.
