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.

Photos of Morrison Co folks

Have I mentioned that I've posted a ton of pictures (mostly from the Morrison County Atlases) on another blog called "Morrison County (Minnesota), Remembered"?  I know, the name's clumsy, but there are over 700 photos there along with a search box to type in a family name.  The format is a bit odd as you can re-order the pics about eight different pointless ways ☺.  Check it out and maybe find long lost pics of relatives... 


  1. There haven't been many comments lately so I thought I'd leave you one. Hi!

    1. A reminder to be thankful for readers ☺ xoxo
