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 Photo of the Faust Opera House

Look what a beautiful picture Larry found (on Ancestry) of our favorite street in Pierz.  This time, the photographer set his tripod in the middle of the street, in between the Pierz city hall on the left and Dr Kerkhoff's on the right.  It had to be after 1916 cuz the bank is there in the middle background.  Probably just after the Fourth of July, too, cuz all the weeds are trimmed away from the curbs, the road looks pretty rut-free, and there's only one pile of horse turds ☺.
