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.

Two cool photos from 1954--!  Part of the Peter and Mary (Sand) Lewans family, 
standing in the garden with Mary's dad, Joe Sand.  
Joe was Grandma Lizzy's brother, BTW.

And here are Mary and her daughters among the hollyhocks.  
What sweet pics from sixty years ago ☺
