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.

Magdalena Ferschweiler Sand makes the news, again...

Look what Larry found at the online site of Prairie Public Broadcasting, North Dakota's  public radio service.  This is from October 4th, 2013 and they did the story because of the Cassleton, ND connection.  Yeah, some of the info came from Hesch History--we basically did the research for them--but we thank them for acknowledging it.
We realize they left some meaty parts out of the story, but the piece had to fit a time constriction, I suppose.
Oh, you want to review it?

HERE's what happened to Magdalena after her return to Little Falls...and HERE'S the earlier stuff (scroll down, the news articles are even transcribed for you).    Yah, you're welcome ☺
