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.

Brandls' Going Out Of Business Sale!

From family stories, I thought that John and Joe Brandl were really progressive businessmen who jumped on the automotive idea early, but this ad was published in March 1919, a good 12 years after the first cars showed up in Buckman.  Oh, well, they did have to build the garage first.... and harnesses, union suits and flannel shirts, all on sale!
