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.

Die alten böhmischen Heschs

 Photos you'll recognize if you've been paying attention, this is Agnes Trachofsky Hesch and her husband Mathias Hesch.  Their story is HERE, and in the masthead, above.  I was scrolling thru my myriad photos and realized that I never posted the beautiful sepia one below.
Agnes died in 1929, and Mathias in 1931, so the photo would have been from the 20s when they were in their 70s. Looks like Josh gets his "tallish forehead" from the Hesch side!
