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.

Iffy career moves by Deputy Sheriff J P Sand

Two interesting newspaper articles, one BY J P Sand, and the other about him.  The first had to do with horses stolen from J P's brother Mike Sand (yup, our great grandpa).  Evidently, JP's nose was out of joint because of an article in the Little Falls "Sun" newspaper, which we don't have and probably don't need.  Thing is, it's kind of amazing that he remained deputy when he was so publically  snarky here about Rasicot.  This was in the Little Falls Transcript on September 21, 1883:
Evidently, JP was a better (or at least more trusted) deputy four years later, when this account appeared in the Little Falls Herald  (September 23, 1887).  Now he was a hero--cool!
