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 great women

...what was it about grandmas and their kitchens?

                        My Grandma Lizzy                      Larry's Great Grandma Alice

Larry thought to put these pics side-by-side this week, and he wrote:

"So iconic an image that we have pictures of great grandmothers, aproned, ready for anything, no one leaves hungry. And no one did. 
Two strong women".
