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.

The Thommes and Terhaar Families

Pete Thommes was Casper Thommes' son (see obit, below).  Pete and Susan lived in Agram township, so they were neighbors of the rest of the Hesch family (Johann and Marya, our great greats, and Mathias and Agnes Hesch, Paul's brother, and Anton, their younger, bachelor brother).

We published a post on Gerhard and Marie Terhaar two years ago, but here are Atlas  photos of  Herman, Henry and Severin, plus one of "Theresa and Anna", tho I don't know which family they came from, do you?

These families are connected in various ways to the Stepans and Dengels. ☺

Coincidentally, Chris sent this today, too.  It was published in 1981, about Gerhard Terhaar and his family.  They didn't know it'd go so well with the topic at hand on HH thirty three years later!
