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.

Two new places to look for old photos!

Someone at work told me about a really neat Facebook page called St Cloud's photos and stories about the early years of St Cloud, Minnesota.  'Course, it tickles me, and I had to go post a pic or two.  Poor Larry had to go look right away when he got online ☺ and before long, he wondered if we should do the same sort of thing for Morrison County?  We have hundreds of photos from the Morrison County Atlases that are unrelated to Heschs or Pierz or Buckman--it'd be a perfect place to post em and keep em from being forgotten.  

SO, go! Check it out, add your comments and old photos, and spread the word, ok?  Morrison County Memories.
A year later:  I quit MCM on Facebook because posting there isn't google-able (if you search the internet for one of the names there, it doesn't show up as a hit). SO, try "Morrison County, Minnesota, Remembered"  Lots of the old pics there!

  1. Sounds like an excellent idea, although I have no ancestors in MN. There are a lot of people who would appreciate that.
