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.

Buckman News--the Peschels

Here's a bit of interesting info sent today by our corespondent (and possible relative?) Rick Schlosser.  Hey, it's always fun to hear about Buckman from another families' POV 😊.  Thanks, Rick!

It has been quite a while since we corresponded. I hope you are doing well.
I'm sharing some more information of the Peschel family.
To my knowledge the Peschels were from the Tulowice area of Upper Silesia which is now in southwestern Poland.

Clip from the paper of 10-10-1914. One of the Peschels spotted the fire at the jail.

This Johann had had eight children including Johann Jr who died 3 years before his father in 1919. Hedwig and Mary are listed in this clip by their married names.

If this this tree of my Great Grandfather Johann Peschel is not correct I would appreciate any correction. (Click to enlarge).

His son, my Grandfather Johann, father of Mary my mother.
