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.

Most of the descendants of Frank & Catherine Sand

Man, I can hardly think of a better way to spend a summer Saturday than getting acquainted and re-acquainted with relatives.  The pot luck was great, the weather was breezy and below 80 mostly, the talk and laughter and hugs was practically constant.  It was a terrific day!
Frank Sand, you'll recall, was the baby of the Michael and Louisa Sand family (so grandma Lizzie's baby brother from the 1900 photo).

Here are many of the grandkids of Frank and Catherine...
(plus spouses and drop ins ☺...)

...and their kids, the great grands....

And the delightful next generations, 
the great great grandkids.  
With any luck, they'll remember being there today, 
possibly even into the 2100s, can you imagine?

 (A small portion of the paparazzi ☺)
Thanks for inviting me--it was great fun!
