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.

A new "eight women" picture connection


When we finally figured out when this picture was probably taken, and why, we posted about it.  I was, of course, most interested in the five Sand women (Grandma, her sisters and mom) and the woman on the bottom right (most likely Charlie Sand's wife, here on a visit from Wenatchee,Washington).  We still don't know the woman with the pitcher, or the kneeling woman on the left, but we figured they were the cooks and servers for one of the three Hesch weddings that took place in 1920.

Then, when Chris sent the picture of Lena Dengel Mueller, I was thrilled, cuz now she fits, too ☺ See?
Added April, 2015:  Lena Sand Block's great grandaughter says the kneeling woman is most likely LENA--of course!  So I've changed the photo to include that ID.  Now, all we need is the name of the nectar-pourer ☺. Thanks, Jenny!

Look closely--mother Louisa is holding Angie's hand, and has her arm around Lena; Jenny mentioned that it might be little Hildegard, 
just out of the picture next to her mom on the left.
That'd be cool ☺
