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.

Valentine Sendelbach & Elizabeth Hesch Wedding

A huge THANK YOU to our newest family contact--Kathleen, a descendant of the Dworschaks and Sendelbachs around Waumandee, Wisconsin.  (If you're lost, read the history below the header, above)
I adore family wedding pics.  This one is cool because Kathleen said that Val and Lizzy were especially devoted to each other, and that when she died on Valentine's Day in 1962, he couldn't go on without her.  Val died two weeks later, on March 2, 1962.

BUT, these two items (pic & clipping) were from 55 years earlier, 
in 1904, a much happier time for them...

THANKS, Kathleen!
