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.

Thanks to Larry and Photoshop

 Once again, we benefit from technology and people who know how to use it.  The day Susan sent this photo, Larry and I lightened it, to see what Great Grandma Mary was holding, and to see her better. We often lighten old pics and usually stop there, but last night, Larry subtly colored the photo, not to replace the first, but to make Mary a bit more real.  Wow. Just wow.
