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.

Odd stories from the news--1904, 1912, 1917, 1921

 You can draw your own conclusions about these stories.  Luckily the term "autoist" didn't stick, the story from Bowlus is full of odd "facts", there was political snark during elections back then, too, and Reddy Kilowatt had a predecessor named K.W. with a genealogy all his own ☺.

I love this list of circus acts.  Wonder if they were as impressive as they sound..
