He died there in 1900.

Math and the New Buckman Constable

More cool stuff!  We're benefiting from Laura's impulse to go through keepsakes, and to send along the ones she thinks we'll appreciate here on HH.
This article is from February, 1965, when a reporter from the cities came up to interview the new constable in Buckman ☺ and his sidekick, Math Hesch.
(Click the article and it'll open larger in a new page).

More thanks to Laura for sharing her dad with us!
